scite is unique because it has the world's largest database of Citation Statements, the snippets from full-text articles where the authors use references in-text. You can read what was said about an individual paper, or search scite's entire database directly to find useful facts or debate in a topic of your interest.
scite operates by harnessing advanced natural language processing and machine learning techniques to amass a comprehensive database of scientific articles. This corpus is subjected to thorough text analysis, where scite extracts and indexes citations within each article. When users search for specific articles or citations, scite delivers in-depth citation context, illuminating how and where a cited work is referenced in other research papers. Its innovative Smart Citations feature distinguishes whether a citation offers supportive or contrasting evidence, aiding users in discerning the impact and relevance of cited sources. scite further empowers researchers with visualizations, reports, and citation alerts to uncover citation patterns, monitor their work's influence, and remain updated in their respective fields. Researchers can also create profiles to curate their academic presence, while a browser extension streamlines access to citation context during online article reading. In essence, scite enhances the research process by providing a comprehensive toolkit for understanding citation dynamics and assessing research credibility.
