I'm working on a similar system - trying to signal which references
cited on Wikipedia are open.
Plans are afoot to start a demo with Wikipedia articles within the
scope of WikiProject Medicine, but we could in principle also do a set
of references first, e.g. the 1k from the IPCC report (if they are
cited on Wikipedia), thus possibly adding another layer to this
The only problem - not a trivial one - is what to count as open, and
how many aspects of this openness should be signaled (cf.
>From a Wikipedia perspective, there would be at least two aspects -
that a reference is (1) free to read and (2) licensed such that
materials from it can be reused in Wikipedia articles (i.e. CC BY-SA
Once he first few of the IPCC references have been processed, I should
be happy to run a demo.
