Activity Definition(s)


Follow, via hyperlinks, a trail of citations, e.g., from a journal article's bibliography, to an article cited in that bibliography, to an article cited in the cited-article's bibliography, etc. A trail may originate in a document such as a journal article, or in a collection of references (e.g., in a de.licio.us or a Zotero collection).

  • Traverse a linked citation trail (backwards and forwards)
  • Forge a new trail (a nonlinear vector)
  • Apply a personal tag to any citation
  • Store citation data in a collection
