The Flows of Concepts

Marcin Skulimowski

Abstract

A scientific citation is usually presented as a relation between two publications without any precise meaning and inner structure. In fact, the structure of a citation, which is usually not represented explicitly, can be quite complex. Expanded citations, which link scientific papers and concepts from them, allow to represent the structure in a machine-readable way. In this paper, we use expanded citations to introduce the notion of concept flow. We briefly explore the notion and show that it opens interesting possibilities as far as concepts and their importance in scientific domains are considered.
