&lt;br&gt;
Scholarly literature has become more than just papers. Hyperlinks are the preferred way to reference other works, including non-textual objects like datasets and software. While hyperlinks are more powerful than text-based citations, they are prone to link rot.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br&gt;
&lt;br&gt;
Link rot is inevitable to some extent, but some practices compound the problem and cannot be mitigated without the engagement of all stakeholders. Shortened URLs, proxy URLs, vanity URLs, Sci-Hub URLs and many other non-canonical citations add an extra level of indirection that increases the risk of breaking the permanent record of science.&lt;br&gt;
&lt;br&gt;
We are building&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://cobaltmetrics.com/"&gt;Cobaltmetrics&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;to set the new standard for citation tracking and foster diversity in altmetrics.&amp;nbsp;The web is our corpus, and we index all URIs and identifiers as first-class citations.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
