You can iterate and grow network by adding these as seed papers
Location Citation Network Microsoft Academic or Crossref One paper or multiple papers References of input paper Most cited by local network Also has co-authorship network
CoCites PubMed One paper No graph yet. Uses cocitations of last 100 cited papers of input paper. Sort by co-citations or similarity (% of cocitations) Future version will allow multiple papers
Connected Papers Semantic Scholar One paper Similarity metric based on concepts of cocitations and bibliometric coupling Additional function to detect “Prior works” (most cited by local network) and “derivative works” (works that cite most of local network
Papergraph Semantic Scholar One paper 20 X 20 citations or references of input paper- Most cited by local network
