[Biojava-l] references

Dear all,

References to literature are things that need representing in EMBL,
GENBANK, SwissProt entries (and almost certainly in other contexts). It
would be nice if we could supply a Reference interface under
org.biojava.utils - what should the interface contain?

interface Reference {
  // a List of Author objects
  List getAuthors();

  String getJournal();
  int getVolume();
  int getStartPage();
  int getEndPage();

interface Author {
  char [] getInitials();
  String getSurname();

What is missing? What shouldn't be here? Is it needed at all?
