Understanding citations to scientific publications is a task of vital importance in the academic world. This task can be supported by appropriate data structures and visualization mechanisms. One challenge is the amount of existing relationships and the difficulty of determining which of the references of a document are considered the most potentially relevant to it. In this paper, we propose a visual approach based on graphs to recommend important references. Also, we propose a procedure to build and update the citation graph in a collaborative way.
