"The Open Citations Project is global in scope, designed to change the face of scientific publishing. It aims to make bibliographic citation links as easy to use as Web links. Its goals are three-fold: To establish OpenCitations.net, a public RDF triplestore for biomedical literature citations. (Note: In this context, a bibliographic citation is a reference within a particular citing work to another publication termed the cited work.

The PIC builds on the legacy of the International Polar Year and we seek active participation and ideas from national governments, international organizations, and the scientific and data management communities at large to build this common resource." - Mike Chelen from Bookmarklet
