Building an autonomous citation index for grey literature: the Economics working papers case

Jose Manuel Barrueco Cruz & Thomas Krichel
This paper describes an autonomous citation index named CitEc that has been developed by the authors. The system has been tested using a particular type of grey literature: working papers available in the RePEc (Research Papers in Economics) digital library. Both its architecture and performance are analysed in order to determine if the system has the quality required to be used for information retrieval and for the extraction of bibliometric indicators.
