The basic properties and small values of partition numbers are readily 
available from any number of sources, e.g., A&S.  Concerning larger 
partition values, the Folsom-Kent-Ono paper, p.3, gives initial digits of 
partition numbers larger than those found in the current A000041 b-file. In 
short, the content of the paper shows no need for the OEIS, and the 
references, probably truthfully, show no use of it.

If these papers had been NJIS papers, or surveys of the partition numbers, 
omitting references to the OEIS would have been remiss. But these papers 
were apparently announcements of independent results obtained without aid of 
the OEIS. As much as we love the OEIS, sometimes life goes on without it.
