To permit scholars to undertake deep citation analysis, and to discuss the textual context within a citing publication from which a particular citation is generated, a method is required for uniquely identifying each individual In-Text Reference Pointer (aka “in-text citation”) within the citing work.

We will present the In-Text Reference Pointer Identifier (acronym InTRePID) developed by OpenCitations, that is a new globally unique persistent identifier specific for individual In-Text Reference Pointers. The InTRePID builds on the Open Citation Identifier (OCI) that we introduced at PIDapalooza 2018.

We will then outline the InTRePID Resolution Service to be developed at OpenCitations, and will detail the metadata that will be returned to users, on submitting an InTRePID to that resolution service, from a database of In-Text Reference Pointers and their textual contexts.

Finally, we will discuss the potential usefulness of InTRePIDs for deep citation analysis, and for the determination of citation types and citation purpose by the use of human or artificial intelligence to study the textual context within which an In-Text Reference Pointer is located.
