What is scite?

scite helps you better understand a research publication 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 a publication, if any.

Why scite?

You can

  • Search a publication and see the contexts of how citing publications talk about it.
  • Check how many times a publication is supported or contrasted by citing publications.
  • 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).
