Software and Dependencies in Research Citation Graphs

Stephan Druskat

Following the widespread digitalization of scholarship, software has become essential for research, but the current sociotechnical system of citation does not reflect this sufficiently. Citation provides context for research, but the current model for the respective research citation graphs does not integrate software. In this paper, I develop a directed graph model to alleviate this, describe challenges for its instantiation, and give an outlook of useful applications of research citation graphs, including transitive credit.
