scite and Nested Knowledge Partner to Provide Living Systematic Reviews

Mon Jul 25 2022

Brooklyn, NY —July 25, 2022 — scite, a startup developing the next generation of citations, has partnered with Nested Knowledge, a startup introducing living systematic reviews, to provide a comprehensive solution for medical writers and systematic reviewers to more efficiently discover and evaluate research.

Utilizing advanced machine learning, scite has developed a system that extracts citation statements from scientific articles, allowing users to see exactly how and why an article has been cited. Additionally, scite includes where the citation statement appears in the citing article and, using a combination of human experts and artificial intelligence, classifies the citation statement as supporting, contrasting, or mentioning the cited claim. These “Smart Citations” are now live on millions of articles from leading publishers like the National Academy of Sciences, Wiley, ACS, and more.

Nested Knowledge has developed a novel way for researchers to find, analyze, and present published clinical outcomes data, allowing them to build continuously updated living systematic reviews and enabling stakeholders to access their research in interactive, visual dashboards with built-in analytical tools.

With this partnership, Nested Knowledge will add Smart Citations to their living systematic review platform to provide a richer and more nuanced source of information that can be used for better screening and discovery.

Josh Nicholson, co-founder and CEO of scite says, “We’re excited to be working with Nested Knowledge. Together, I think we provide a very compelling solution, and it’s great that the integration is already in use by a leading pharmaceutical consulting agency.”

Keith Kallmes, co-founder and President of Nested Knowledge, says “Integrating scite will enable researchers in our platform the ability to immediately access critical citation data at every step of the review process. We are excited to see what our corporate and academic clients are able to accomplish with the joint tool.”

About Nested Knowledge Nested Knowledge is a St. Paul-based startup that enables corporate and academic researchers to review, meta-analyze, and visualize the scientific literature in a web-based interactive platform. Nested Knowledge is funded in part by an SBIR from the National Library of Medicine.

About scite scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations-citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. Scite is used by researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
