When showing an annotation on it's standalone, linkable page, we should show a proper citation for the original document, if it has one.

I would like to add that the fix for this issue should also choose an appropriate method for providing the citation data in machine-readable markup. This could be hCite, or something similar.

IIRC, The idea here was to show citations that are actually fit to be embedded in publications.
That means we should actually follow the established standards for identifying articles; simply showing the domain and title, as we do now, is not sufficient for that.
Many articles don't have enough metadata for a more scientific identification, but some do; when the data is available, we should use it to generate a proper citation.

So I am reopening this.

We need a description here that permits actual acceptance criteria. There is no objective definition of a "proper citation".

What do we want? A button to reveal a BibTeX citation? BibJSON? Something else?

In fact I am not sure. IIRC, @IanMulvany (of the eLife fame) was the original source of this idea. Maybe he can chip in the discussion?

And though this issue has been open for almost another year, it's still unclear. Closing.
