Draw a picture where some parts are tables

As mentioned above, like the picture below:

• You can do that with the psmatrix environment, from the pst-node package (a member of the pstricks family). – Bernard May 3 '15 at 11:59
• To the downvoters: Please don't downvote a question (especially if it's the first question of a new user) without leaving an explanation of why you think the question needs improvement. Just downvoting without giving the user a chance to improve their post is useless and plain hostile. – Jake May 3 '15 at 12:37
• dshbusiness, welcome to Tex.SE. Probably you got downvoted because usually, asking how to draw something just supplying a picture of your desired result without posting any code attempt in your question is seen as a "gimme teh codez" request and not very well welcomed. Probably you were asking how in a "what could I use" sense and that's a more valid question. You can ask what packages are best suited for a certain task. In any case, adding some wording to your question to make this explicit is the best bet. – Alenanno May 3 '15 at 15:02
• By the way, you can still edit your question (and downvotes might be retracted in that case). – Alenanno May 3 '15 at 15:05
• Alternatively, you could post some code e.g. for the individual parts of the picture and ask for help putting them together to form the whole diagram. If the question is which packages you could use: you could use tikz as an alternative to pstricks. TikZ also has libraries for matrices and so on. Or you could create the individual elements and then use tikzmark to annotate them and add the arrows etc. – cfr May 3 '15 at 15:10

A starting point using TikZ:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{positioning,calc}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\node (ul)
{%
\begin{tabular}{|l|}
\hline
Reference paper \\
\hline
rp sentence1 \\
rp sentence2 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}%
};
\node[below=of ul] (ml)
{%
\begin{tabular}{|l|}
\hline
Citances to rp1 \\
\hline
citance1 \\
citance2 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}%
};
\node[below=of ml] (ll)
{%
\begin{tabular}{|l|}
\hline
Abstracts \\
\hline
abstract1 \\
abstract2 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}%
};

\node (mm) at ([xshift=3.5cm] $(ul.north)!0.5!(ll.south)$ )
{%
\begin{tabular}{|l|l|}
\hline
rp1 & $\ldots$ \\
rp2 & $\ldots$ \\
\hline
c1 & $\ldots$ \\
c2 & $\ldots$ \\
\hline
a1 & $\ldots$ \\
a2 & $\ldots$ \\
\hline
\end{tabular}%
};
\foreach \Nodo in {ul,ml,ll}
{  \draw[->]
(\Nodo.east) -- (mm);
}
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}
