See http://www.crossref.org/citedby/index.html

Add Crossref's "Cited by" functionality to OJS, so that we can display any articles that cite a given article in an OJS journal. To do this, we need to add reference deposit functionality to OJS' Crossref XML export plugin -- Crossref only allows cited-by functionality to those who deposit their references. 

Some notes: 

-- Reference deposit to Crossref can happen in two ways: a) during the normal article XML metadata deposit (see http://www.crossref.org/depositSchema/crossref3.0.1.xsd); or b)  separately, as a "reference only" XML deposit (see http://www.crossref.org/depositSchema/doi_citations1.0.1.xsd), which is useful if the article has been deposited previously.

-- Reference deposit more or less requires output from the Citation Markup Assistant. Article reference lists that are extracted/parsed/stored by the CMA then should be a) added to the Crossref XML Export file, which will require an extension of the XML Export plugin; and/or b) available as an XML export option after the Editor has approved all citations, in the CMA itself (along with the current NLM options). 

-- It looks like the XML export information, which up until now has been submitted manually to Crossref by editors, could also be deposited by HTTP POST: see http://doi.crossref.org/doc/SystemInterface.html#asynsubupload. For this to happen, a Crossref login/password credential must be supplied. 

-- Similarly, it looks like "cited by" information can be retrieved by HTTP: see http://doi.crossref.org/doc/RTQueries.html. 

-- "cited by" information should be retrieved, parsed (& added to its own table? how granular?), and displayed with the published article, likely in the RT and/or along with the abstract. I'm not sure how often this information should be retrieved -- every time an article is viewed? 

I'll be investigating this some more and will add notes as relevant. I don't think this will be a trivial task.

DrAbdalbasit, I'm not sure what your intention is in uploading attachment #3984 [details], but this probably isn't the place to do it.

I'm also interested in depositing references to Crossref. It seems that currently the Export citations tab in the Citation manager does not offer Crossref compatible output: http://help.crossref.org/#depositing-references

The only two options for XML export of the citation list are two versions of NLM Journal Publishing ref list, but that is differently formed as the Crossref reference deposit XML format.
