As the title of this post suggests, we are currently tackling the problem of developing a feature which will provide users with a list of the articles that have cited a paper of interest. This is either not too hard or it is impossible depending on how you go about it. There are different ways to cite a paper: put the journal name first (may be abbreviated or not…. or abbreviated in a different way), put the year first, put the issue number in, don’t put the issue number in etc. Â Â Â
ÂSo the search engine fell in on itself the first few times I tried this but now it is not too bad. ChemRefer also managed to crash ChemSpider last weekend (oops).
ÂAnyway, below is the embryonic version of this feature which will form part of a “detailed view” for displaying article metadata more clearly (only the article titles and the publisher name have hyperlinks in the example – btw the end presentation probably will be very different to this but the metadata will be similar). Note that the current index wasn’t designed with this kind of feature in mind so there are likely to be more citations of this article (chose this exampleÂ because both articles are Open Access soÂ anyone canÂ analyse these citations):
