First , many thanks. I think it was about 10 yers ago when David Shotton
presented Open Citations at JISC . David Flanders organised the meeting and
I presented Open Bibliography (which came out of JISC funding to OKFN).
Before that no citations and no bibliography were formally Open, so thanks
to everyone who has contributed over the years.

COCI is our first OpenCitations Index of open citations, in which we
> have applied the concept of citations as first-class data entities to index
> the contents of one of the major databases of open scholarly
> citation information, namely Crossref, and to render and make available
> this information in machine-readable RDF.
> The new release of COCI, the second, now contains
> 449,840,503 citation links, between
> 46,534,705 bibliographic resources.
> In ContentMine's Wikimedia-funded WikiFactMine, Daniel Mietchen, Tom Arrow
put 15 million bibliographic records into Wikidata. Are yours in a form
where they could be added?
