scite: A smart citation index that displays the context of citations and classifies their intent using deep learning

Abstract: Citation indices are tools used by the academic community for research and research evaluation which aggregate scientific literature output and measure impact by collating citation counts. Citation indices help measure the interconnections between scientific papers but fall short because they fail to communicate contextual information about a citation. The usage of citations in research evaluation without consideration of context can be problematic, because a citation that presents contrasting evidence to a pa… Show more

“…This study uniquely compares the 2 platforms and highly suggests newer AI platforms will still need to be carefully scrutinized and validated when relied on for health information, abstract generation, or citation generation. Other platforms not evaluated in this report may be more carefully curated for academic purposes, such as Scite AI, 20 and have less of a hallucination rate. Additionally, this study is limited by the input of questions we used in each ophthalmic discipline.…”
