    Open Citation Linking: The Way Forward

    Steve Hitchcock, Donna Bergmark*, Tim Brody, Christopher Gutteridge,
    Les Carr, Wendy Hall, Carl Lagoze*, Stevan Harnad,

    Excerpt from the abstract: The speed of scientific communication ? the
    rate of ideas affecting other researchers' ideas ? is increasing
    dramatically. The factor driving this is free, unrestricted access
    to research papers. Measurements of user activity in mature eprint
    archives of research papers such as arXiv have shown, for the first
    time, the degree to which such services support an evolving network
    of texts commenting on, citing, classifying, abstracting, listing and
    revising other texts. The Open Citation project has built tools to
    measure this activity, to build new archives, and has been closely
    involved with the development of the infrastructure to support open
    access on which these new services depend. This is the story of
    the project, intertwined with the concurrent emergence of the Open
    Archives Initiative (OAI).
