The JAMA Network and scite Partner on the Development of Smart Citations

Mon Sep 12 2022

Brooklyn, NY - September 12, 2022 - scite, an award-winning platform used by students and researchers to discover and understand the scientific literature better, has partnered with the JAMA Network, part of the American Medical Association (AMA), America’s oldest and largest professional association for physicians and medical students.

scite has developed a novel system that allows anyone reading research to see how and why an article has been cited by displaying citation statements–the in-text sentences where the article was referenced in each citing article. Through this partnership, scite will have access to the full-text of all articles published by the AMA, enhancing their discoverability and improving the coverage of scite. To date, scite has partnered with over two dozen major publishers, analyzing and indexing over 1.1 billion Smart Citations extracted from more than 31 million full-text articles.

“At the JAMA Network, we are interested in using innovative technology to ensure the broadest possible access to the research we publish,” said Vida Damijonaitis, Director, World Wide Sales at the JAMA Network, “this partnership with scite will help us to enhance the way our readers interact with our content.”

scite co-founder and CEO Josh Nicholson echoed this enthusiasm, noting that scite was “excited to partner with the AMA to further aid scientists, physicians, and other medical professionals in their research, continuing education, and patient care.”
