The Open Citation Project - Reference Linking and Citation Analysis for Open Archives

OpCit: a selective prior bibliography

These are the influences that shaped the OpCit project. Linked here are selected papers by the main collaborators in the project, covering distributed digital libraries, eprints and changing publishing models, reference linking and linking tools. It is not an exhaustive list, but each classification and each paper will lead the interested reader to significant prior work.
