Today I've updated the Key References proposal, an idea I floated almost 9 years ago. Basically, the idea is that you mark in the bibliography of your paper, which are the most important items that your readers should read next.
Despite coverage in the Computational Complexity blog, the initial proposal did not get much traction, however similar mechanisms have been proposed since in the bio-medical domain. The updated proposal includes these mechanisms.
Maybe now is the right time for this idea? See KeyReferences.org.
