References and Citations for All - Colleen Flaherty, Inside Higher Ed

“Open citations now!” So concludes a new open letter to publishers from researchers who support making scholarly citations freely available, in the interest of better citation analysis. Advocates of such efforts say that references are a pillar of scholarly work and that being able to understand how articles cite each other shouldn’t require an expensive subscription to a database. In short, just as open-access proponents argue for free access to scholarly articles, open-citation proponents want free access to publication citation data. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2017/12/06/scholars-push-free-access-online-citation-data-saying-they-need-and-deserve-access
