Hi, the links for a particular publication do not appear to always be unique. The formula seems to be something like "bibbase.org/network/publication/author1-author2-sometitle-yyyy". The problem comes when you have two references with the same authors, title, and year. This happens somewhat often in my database, as I have econ papers that have two versions -- a published paper and a working paper version of that paper (which often contains much more information and data then the published version). On my BibBase page itself, these are shown just fine of course, but if I want to link directly to a reference, the generated URL is the same for both references.
An example can be seen on my page here. Under 2021, both version of the Saez & Zucman paper "A Wealth Tax on Corporations' Stock" both have the same "link" (accessible here) and the link only displays the working paper version.
We use the direct BibBase links to references fairly often in one part of our project in order to link to the original sources we are citing -- one section in particular may be vulnerable to this, as we are analyzing the methodologies of various economic papers. Sometimes we analyze the published version, sometimes the working paper versions given the increased information, and sometimes those two papers would end up having the same link as they are in the same year and with the exact same title and authors.
Is there any way to ensure all links would be unique and thus more stable?
