Scientific authors urgently need help in man- aging the fast increasing number of publica- tions. We describe and demonstrate a tool that supports authors in browsing graphically through electronically available publications, thus allowing them to quickly adapt to new domains and publish faster. Navigation is as- sisted by means of typed citation graphs, i.e. we use methods and resources from compu- tational linguistics to compute the kind of ci- tation that is made from one paper to another (refutation, use, confirmation etc.). To verify the computed citation type, the user can in- spect the highlighted citation sentence in the original PDF document. While our classi- fication methods used to generate a realistic test data set are relatively simple and could be combined with other propose...
