. Hardly - this is an extremely nasty problem. If your Word 
. bibliography is
. in plain text, then it will prove almost impossible to 
. separate out the
. different components of each reference in any automated 
. manner. My first
. approach would be to save as text and write a Perl script 
. that separates
. each entry by commas - this might speed up the process but 
. would probably
. fail for multiple authors and journals.
. Not much help at all really.
