Abstract:  An increasing amount of information is being published in structured databases and retrieved using queries, raising the question of how query results should be cited. Since there are a large number of possible queries over a database, one strategy is to specify citations to a small set of frequent queries-citation views-and use these to construct citations to other "general" queries. In this talk, I present this approach to implementing citation views and describe alternative policies for the joint, alternate, and aggregated use of citation views.
