Open Citations

Know how often an article was cited

OpenCitations.net is a project, which brings Times Cited counts (the number of times a document was cited in other articles) into the Open Scholarship realm. While it is a fabulous service, the citation counts can differ greatly from those provided by Web of Science, Scopus or Google Scholar.

For the purpose of Open Access Helper I felt that the number of times a document was cited could be a helpful indicator. It will be shown in macOS as its own badge and in iOS just underneath the action buttons.

As you hover over the OC badge, the times cited number will be shown. Clicking the badge will take you to a page on oahelper.org to show additional details.

Tapping the OC Times Cited label in iOS will bring you to the same oahelper.org page mentioned above.

Please note, like any other feature in Open Access Helper, you can disable it easily, from the settnigs screen of the app.
