Metadata Project Muse
Seeking any advice on how to do the following, or where to begin:
I have hundreds of pdfs downloaded from Project Muse & JSTOR. They all have unique file names, #.#.Authorslastname.pdf (e.g. 30.2.kristof.pdf)
Numbers refer to the volume & issue of the journal where the article appears.
Is there any way to grab metadata for these files when adding them to Calibre library? Truly a novice here, but I'm willing to try to learn how to make this process easier than editing each individual pdf.
Thanks in advance.

Is the metadata you're looking for embedded in the PDF? Your PDF reader probably has something in the File menu (eg Properties, Description...) that will allow you read and maybe even edit it - assuming it's there.
Do Jstor or Muse have public metadata databases, and do they have free API software to access the database ?
My experience is that most non-fiction PDF's don't have meaningful embedded metadata - not even author name(s), its often the name of the slave who did the typing or set up the template
