What is scite?

scite helps you better understand an article by extracting how it has been cited and whether it has been supported, just mentioned, or contrasted by citing publications. Through Smart Citations, you see not only the number of citation counts but also the context in which citations take place. Moreover, you can easily check editorial notices of an article, if any.

Why scite?

You can

  • Search an article and see the contexts of how citing publications talk about it.
  • Check how many times an article is supported or contrasted by citing articles.
  • Search a keyword and see what other researchers are saying about a topic and who the experts are.
  • Check the reference list in your manuscript to identify potential issues (e.g. retraction).
