Some folk are confused, but OpenCitations and the Initiative for Open Citations, despite the similarity of their names, are two distinct organizations.
OpenCitations (http://opencitations.net) is an open scholarly infrastructure organization directed by Silvio Peroni and myself, and its primary purpose is to host and build the OpenCitations Corpus (OCC), an RDF database of scholarly citation data that now contains almost 13 million citation links.

With so much broken by the Internet, we may be moving into a mode of fixing things. Are open citations part of the solution, or more of the problem?
The post Fixing Instead of Breaking, Part One — Open Citations appeared first on The Scholarly Kitchen.
What do you think the top priorities for #openscience are?

“Ten years from now, I expect biomedical research will look much different than it does today. I expect researchers will be able to tap a wide range of data streams, which will not only be accessible, they will all be in a format that can be easily shared and reused. By building upon each other’s data, researchers will be able to collectively accelerate biomedical discovery.”
After a successful pilot with @SpringerNature authors, Research Data Support is now available for all published research. The service can now help any published researcher to organise and share their data faster. Find out more about this great service: http://go.nature.com/RDSIntroblog pic.twitter.com/Hw8Dqofe6b
The academic discovery space seems to be buzzing again. This space has become relatively stable after the introduction and maturity of Web Scale Discovery between 2009-2013, but things seem to be hotting up once again.
With the recent interest in integrating discovery of open access, as well as linked data (with a dash of machine learning and text mining) we have the beginnings of an interesting situation. A third development which was harder to forsee is the rise in Open Citation movement which I will focus on in this post.

Two significant barriers prevent comprehensive reference availability through Crossref. Continue reading “Barriers to comprehensive reference availability”
Since 1st January 2018, Crossref has had a new reference distribution policy, described at https://www.crossref.org/reference-distribution/.
There are three possible options for setting the reference distribution preference from which a publisher can choose, these being ‘Closed’, ‘Limited’ and ‘Open”. Continue reading “The new Crossref reference distribution policy”
Back in February we announced our intention to require authors to provide a data availability statement with newly submitted manuscripts. We’re both happy and proud to say that this is now our formal policy, and that a such a statement is mandatory for all new research articles and clinical studies submitted to Hindawi titles. Continue reading “Making a statement about data availability”
This thematic report (published by European Commission, Research & Innovation) provides a systematic overview of the advantages and challenges of supporting Open Science activities, and the incentives and rewards that most effectively encourage the adoption and implementation of Open Science policies.

Exactly 5 years ago Twitter started offering the option for users to download their full
archive of personal tweets. The archive gives you a change to quickly browse through your
personal history and find those funny cat pictures you once posted. But there is additional value in the archive, transcending the trips down to memory lane. For example, by looking into a full Twitter archive one can investigate longitudinal trends in interaction behaviour or geotag-based movement patterns. While Twitter archives come with their own user interface, they are not really designed for such deeper dives into the data. Which is why I have been working on a small tool called TwArχiv that tries to allow for such insights. Continue reading “Meet the TwArχiv”
Summary: Citations play an important role in scientific discourse, in the practice of information retrieval, and in bibliometrics. Recently, there have been a growing number of initiatives which make citations freely available as open data. The article describes the current status of these initiatives and shows that a critical mass of data could be made available in the near future. New opportunities could arise from that, especially for libraries. The DFG funded project Linked Open Citation Database (LOC-DB) is presented as a practical way for libraries to participate.
