scite is an award-winning platform for discovering and evaluating scientific articles via Smart Citations. Smart Citations allow users to see how a scientific paper has been cited by providing the context of the citation and a classification describing whether it provides supporting or contrasting evidence for the cited claim.
By seeing how research has been cited all in one place, researchers, students, and research evaluators can easily find relevant and well supported results.
Find out if any publication has been supported or contrasted.
Search citation statements to find answers to any research question.
Evaluate groups of articles in a single place.
Get notified when a new supporting or contrasting citation is made to one of your articles.

scite is an incredibly clever tool. The feature that classifies papers on whether they find supporting or contrasting evidence for a particular publication saves so much time. It has become indispensable to me when writing papers and finding related work to cite and read.

As a PhD student, I'm so glad that this exists for my literature searches and papers. Being able to assess what is disputed or affirmed in the literature is how the scientific process is supposed to work, and scite helps me do this more efficiently.

scite is such an awesome tool! It’s never been easier to place a scientific paper in the context of the wider literature.

This is a really cool tool. I just tried it out on a paper we wrote on flu/pneumococcal seasonality... really interesting to see the results were affirmed by other studies. I had no idea.
