I had same issue and when I checked Crossref tool I found it. Could you please advise me what to do to activate it.

Are you using one of the default OJS templates or custom one?

If it is custom one, please post the code of article details template page

We are using custom theme and here is the code

Hi @environcj ,
To view your citations, you must have enabled the Cite by service by Crossref
Once you are enabled, some numbers should appear in the plugin.

Cited by service by crossref is already enabled unfortunately not able to see citations in the plugin

To validate it, first query the Crossref API for a DOI, how many citations it has, then open the OJS with that DOI and the statistics must match.
