New Initiative Plans to Open Scholarly Citation Data

Six organizations, including eLife and PLOS, founded the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC), which aims to coordinate efforts to “open up data on the citations that link research publications” and “promote the creation of a comprehensive, freely-available corpus of scholarly citation data.” Thirty-three organizations have pledged their support for I4OC. According to the press release, a fully open citation dataset can provide benefits such as the following:
  1. The establishment of a global public web of linked scholarly citation data to enhance the discoverability of published content, both subscription access and open access. This will particularly benefit individuals who are not members of academic institutions with subscriptions to commercial citation databases.
  2. The ability to build new services over the open citation data, for the benefit of publishers, researchers, funding agencies, academic institutions and the general public, as well as enhancing existing services.
  3. The creation of a public citation graph to explore connections between knowledge fields, and to follow the evolution of ideas and scholarly disciplines.

For more information, read the press release.
