Internet Archive Blog: Internet Archive Releases Refcat, the IA Scholar Index of over 1.3 Billion Scholarly Citations. “As part of our ongoing efforts to archive and provide perpetual access to at-risk, open-access scholarship, we have released Refcat (‘reference’ + ‘catalog’), the citation index culled from the catalog that underpins our IA Scholar service for discovering the scholarly literature and research outputs within Internet Archive. This first release of the Refcat dataset contains over 1.3 billion citations extracted from over 60 million metadata records and over 120 million scholarly artifacts (articles, books, datasets, proceedings, code, etc) that IA Scholar has archived through web harvesting, digitization, integrations with other open knowledge services, and through partnerships and joint initiatives.”
