Generating citations from provenance - INCOMPLETE

Introduction

Citing documents, datasets or other things is an inherently provenance-related task given that information in a reference, such as an item's creator or date of publication, are often provenance facts about it. Additionally, provenance graphs may contain information valuable for citation that are not associated directly with the object cited but with objects related to it or perhaps its use.

This pattern relates a methodology for determining how to cite objects and then a methodology for generating reference text from provenance information.
