As a researcher, it’s important to be able to check how a scientific article has been cited—and to find out whether those citations have been supported or challenged by others. Introducing scite.ai.
Say hello to scite!
Having an ORCID iD helps millions of researchers identify and claim their articles across academic journals, peer review systems, websites, and more. In this post, we introduce a new service called scite, which enables you to use your ORCID iD to sign up and see how your articles have been cited, and specifically, if they have been supported or disputed through “smart citations.” Smart citations go beyond traditional writing citations by showing both the context of the citing article and a deep learning classification indicating whether the article provides supporting or disputing evidence.
How does it work?
To see how your articles have been cited, you can sign up at scite with your ORCID iD, claim your articles, and easily see your citation record. Additionally, you can opt in to receive email alerts when new citations to your work appear.
With ORCID, you can keep track of all your work, and with scite, you can keep track of how others are citing your work. Do you want to know how the articles you have published have been cited by others? Scite allows you to see exactly how an article has been cited and if it has been supported or disputed by subsequent research. Instead of claiming papers on scite individually, you can claim them all at once to get an overview of how your entire body of work has been cited.
Already have a scite account? From your profile page, you can create or connect your ORCID iD to add your publication to your profile. Alternatively, from the My Publications tab, you can click Sync articles from ORCID.
After adding your ORCID iD, you can explore how your publications have been cited and set alerts to be notified when your work is cited in the future. These email alerts will show you not only that a publication of yours has been cited, but how it was cited—was it supported? disputed?—alongside the full context of the citations so you can judge for yourself.
Finally, after linking your iD and adding your publications, you can share your scite profile to Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn—or anywhere else you’d like—so others can also see how your work has been cited.
