See what students are saying

Emir Efendić, Ph.D

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.

Kathleen C McCormick, Phd Student

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.

David N. Fisman, Ph.D

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.
