I am developing a literature Review. I am analysing papers in pdf. More precisely I need to check what authors are cited within sections of papers.
I am doing it manually, but I need to develop a control procedure to be sure that I am not missing anything.
To do it, I thought I could use a text search criteria. Unfortunately, I am looking for the character "(" in papers since most of the references within papers are within brackets. Something like (Author Name, 2003).
So I though I could use a text search criteria for "(", using the wildcard "?". Unfortunately since the character "(" is a special character the text search does not work.
I tried this: "("* and also "(*"
Do you have any Idea for developing a text search for the character "(" using Wildcards? I need wildcards since soon after the braket there is the name of the author.
