OSF SciNet

Crowd-Sourcing the Scientific Citation Network

articles contributed


Problem

Scientific citations are frequently constrained by terms-of-use or within proprietary systems making it difficult to see connections in the literature.

Solution

OSF SciNet uses the open source Citelet extension to crowdsource a free, open, and comprehensive metadata dataset of scientific citations and corresponding references to unlock the citation network.

Impact

The dataset generated through this project will make it easier to see the connections in the scientific literature and to promote open science.

Coming Soon: API for SciNet, Public release of the accumulating citation dataset, and more.
