Try Smart Citations from scite_

Scite logo

Smart Citations, developed by scite, help researchers better understand and assess how research articles have been cited beyond crude citation counts. Smart Citations display the citation context from the citing article and are classified by a Deep Learning model to identify if the citation provides supporting or disputing evidence, or simply mentions it.

scite provides the following tools that help researchers find and evaluate high quality information:

  • scite allows researchers to easily see how works are being cited when they’re reading an article online through their browser extensions or through scite’s advanced search capabilities.
  • scite has an automatic Reference Check solution that helps researchers easily see if any references in a document they are writing or reviewing have been disputed or retracted.
  • Researchers can use scite to create custom dashboards to better evaluate research topics and fields.
