ORFG Supports the Initiative for Open Citations

The Open Research Funders Group is pleased to promote the availability of open citation data by signing on as a supporter of the Initiative for Open Citations (I4OC). The I4OC aims to make data on citations that are structured, separable, and open.  Greater access to citation data makes it easier for scholars to trace the evolution of research, discover connections across papers, and build upon macro-level trend data in creative and impactful ways.  Transparency within the research chain is particularly valuable for funders, as it helps us better track the impact of the work we support.  We are proud to stand with dozens of other stakeholders in support of this intitiative.
