INKE – Paper Drill

Paper Drill aims to automate the identification and assemblage of citation chains throughout collections of secondary scholarship. (Citation chaining is the scholarly activity of finding relevant resources via the reference list of an article.)  As with other similar tools, to use Paper Drill one must submit a seed article. Paper Drill differs from other tools in the field, however, by generating a report for the user that details both the article cited in the seed article as well as all of the articles that cite the seed article. In this way, Paper Drill enables both forward and backward citation chaining practices.
