How to link your papers together

This post is part of a continuing series on the new enrichment facility at Socionet.

If you logged into the Socionet system and browse your own papers, you will see to the right of the paper’s full text link the text: “Create a link to a related paper of yours?

Or if your paper’s metadata does not have a full text link, you will see this

If you click on this menu the following form for the linkage creation will open

In this form under the field “Comments” you will see a list of all your claimed publications (on the example above – my list of publications). You have to check one of your publications in this list that has a relationship to another of your papers currently opened in a browser. Then you have to select a specific type of the relation between these two papers from the drop-down list the “Relationship type“. Optionally you can also enter some comments. To end the linkage creation press the “Save” button.

Currently we provide two taxonomy classes for selecting a relationship type between papers belonged to the same author.

One of these taxonomy supports following types of linkages among versions and components of a research publication:

author’s version (manuscript) for
open access version for
version with slight changes for
version with minor changes for
substantially revised version for
revised or new version for
duplicated copy for
presentation of
part of
abstract for
table of contents for
foreword for
bibliography for

The four last values listed above (starting with the “abstract for”) intend for supporting the emerging practice of sharing with the community “units of thought”, e.g. research artifacts, micro-publications, nano-publications, etc.

The second taxonomy supports relationship types of development and complement between research outputs like these:

uses data from
uses method from
uses a model from
uses software from
uses statistics from
details idea/method/model from
generalizes idea/method/model from
implements idea/method/model from
analyzes results from
illustrates results from
interprets results from
corrects errors in
refines results from
refutes results from
develops results from

Linkages you create are visualized on web pages of both linked papers’ metadata as additional information and in a form of a navigation graph of linkages.
