Users can review a list of citations to a given paper with links to the full-text articles (in Postscript or PDF format), view related articles, and sign up to have new citations for selected articles emailed to them. Additional resources at the site include a collection of papers about citation indexing, digital libraries, Web analysis, and neural networks.
