Scholia: data visualization of the items inserted to the bibliographical corpus

All the researchers can be visualized.

But there isn't time available to add all the publications.

Pretty complete panels for the organization (Q27639076) and authors.

Weaker citations panel for both:
Only 7 articles with citations

About citations

We didn't plan to add citations during this project and we didn't add references.

Who linked these items together with P2860 ("Reference")?
