Citation Metadata

Bibliographic citations can take many forms.

Citations are most useful in a structured form (with a schema).

Citations in the bibliography or references or resources section of a textual document must be parsed in order to derive a citation graph.

Many impact statistics are derived from graph metricsa according to citation frequency (and, by implication, things like centrality).
