Crossref Cited-by logo


This is a block plugin that is compatible with the latest OJS 3.

Complete need for citation retrieval based on the Crossref data. Including wide journal level (most cited in all articles) and article detail page. Using caching mechanisms that allow fast extraction of the list of citations and number of citations and allow any user to share the article

This plugin will retrieve the citation counter from the Crossref data and will update the data from the server automatically once a week. So you don’t have to update the data manually. This plugin will be shown at the journal-index level, not on the article detail page level.

Not just that, the plugin also provides the share tools that allow any visitor to share the popular article based on the citation number with social media such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Email, Twitter, and other social media. This social media sharing tool will increase the potential of article citation from others.

*The plugin can only be used for one single journal on each purchase
**The styling that is resulted from this plugin may be different based on the styling generated by the used OJS theme.
