Abstract
It
has been suggested that the "visibility" of an article influences its
citation count. More specifically, it is believed that the social media
can influence article citations.Here we tested the hypothesis that
inclusion of scholarly references in Wikipedia affects the citation
trends. To
perform this analysis, we introduced a citation “propensity” measure,
which is inspired by the concept of amino acid propensity for protein
secondary structures. We show that although citation counts generally
increase during time, the citation "propensity" does not increase after
inclusion of a reference in Wikipedia.
