Thanks to this new cooperation, we are now able to provide greater context around citation information for the academic community through Scite badges indicating whether those citations are supporting, contrasting, or just mentions.

The award-winning platform Scite allows researchers to drill down into citation data to evaluate scientific articles. Scite has been developed by analyzing over 35 million full-text scientific articles and currently has a database of more than 1.3 billion classified citation statements.

This collaboration will help ScienceOpen customers to increase the digital reach of their publishing programs.
