Help for expression to extract metadata from filename

Hi,

I use a a standard naming structure with all my PDF journal articles. That is, Author (year) Title.pdf

For example: Allen (2008) Skeletal muscle fatigue.pdf

Can someone help me write the expression to separate my file names into Author, Year, and Title metadata.

Regards
Nick

Try this:
Code:
(?P<author>[^_0-9-]*) \((?P<published>\d+)\) (?P<title>.*)
