Thu Sep 03 2020

BROOKLYN, NY — September 3rd, 2020 — scite, an award-winning platform for discovering and evaluating scientific articles, and Cambridge University Press (CUP), a leading academic publisher and the world’s oldest university press, have partnered to index CUP articles on scite.

The indexing partnership gives scite access to the full-text of all articles published by CUP, which it will use to create Smart Citations. Smart Citations show how a scientific paper has been cited by providing the context of the citation and a classification describing whether it provides supporting or disputing evidence for the cited claim.

Josh Nicholson, co-founder and CEO of scite says, “We’re excited to index CUP articles, increasing the citation coverage of scite in new disciplines. CUP has a long track record of publishing meaningful research and we’re keen to work with them to make it easier to discover and evaluate research articles they publish.”

Peter White, Manager of Digital Partnerships at Cambridge University Press, says “We are delighted to have reached this agreement with scite. It will add millions of contextualised citations from our award-winning range of research monographs, Elements and academic journals to their knowledge base and significantly enhance the discoverability of our content.”
