Local-Citation-Network

This web app aims to help scientists with their literature review using metadata from OpenAlex (OA), Semantic Scholar (S2) and Crossref (CR). Academic papers cite one another, thus creating a citation network (= graph). Each node (= vertex) represents an article and each edge (= link / arrow) represents a reference / citation. Citation graphs are a topic of bibliometrics, for which other great software exists as well.

This web app visualizes subsets of the global citation network that I call 'local citation networks', defined by the references (and citations) of a given set of input articles. In addition, the locally most relevant references (and citations) missing in the set of input articles are suggested for further review.

Open source contributions

This project is open source (GPL-3). I don't have much more time to work on this project, so I'm actively looking for help and contributors! Bugfixes are always welcome but please contact me before any large pull-requests so we can coordinate. The "docs" folder represents the live version of the project, as that's the folder routed to github.io.
