Access to the Internet and an ability to locate scientific journal articles
|Crowdsourcing the Scientific Citation Network|
|OSF SciNet uses the open source Citelet extension to crowdsource|
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.
