Scite.AI

The Library has acquired the research tool Scite.AI.

Scite is an online tool which assists in the location and evaluation of research papers by showing how they have been cited by other research papers. Scite can be used to search for relevant literature, authors, journals, and specific results or claims. Scite can also be used to engage with a publication, and to understand how it has been discussed, supported, or refuted by other authors.

Each article cited is analysed for context and its position on the argument - supporting, contrasting, and mentioning. This can assist users in assessing the credibility and impact of a study within a given field. Links are provided to each article returned in the results, and these can be cross-referenced with other articles from the same field.

Like ChatGPT, Scite uses AI technology to frame generated responses to questions through its Assistant function. However, the statements returned in these responses are also supported by authentic academic citations with links to peer-reviewed articles.
