29 Universities in Kenya and Uganda Have Now Licensed scite To Improve Research and Education

Mon Oct 18 2021

Brooklyn, NY — October 18, 2021 — scite, an award-winning research tool that helps researchers and students discover and understand research, has signed 29 licenses with Universities in Uganda and Kenya.

Through cooperation with EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries), a non-profit that works with libraries to enable access to knowledge for education, learning, and research, these 29 universities now have premium plus access to scite for three years.

scite has developed a system that extracts citation statements from scientific articles. To date, scite has extracted over 910M citation statements from 26M full-text articles. This information helps researchers and students find expert analyses and opinions on virtually any topic. Additionally, scite makes it easy to see how an article has been cited by others, providing a more nuanced and rich source of information than what is offered by traditional citations.

Josh Nicholson, co-founder, and CEO of scite says, “We’re delighted to be working with EIFL to bring scite to students and researchers around the world. We are thrilled that so many Universities in Kenya and Uganda have been interested in our tool and are happy to work with them to improve education for students and researchers.”
