scite_ Smart Citations metrics widget
Earlier this year, in the Editorial of Volume 7 Issue 2, we announced a new metrics widget, scite_ API by Scite Inc.
scite_ is a platform for discovering and evaluating scientific articles via Smart Citations which allow users to see how a publication has been cited by providing the context of the citation and a classification describing whether it provides 'supporting' or 'contrasting' evidence for the cited claim, or just 'mentioning' the source. It also features the scite Index for journals and institutions which measures how supported publications from a journal or an institution are, and is calculated using the following formula (for 2-
year, 5-year, or a lifetime period):
SJI = [(#supporting) / (#supporting + #contrasting)]
The scite_ Smart Citations widget also shows if there is published errata or if the paper is retracted (see a sample image below). Read more in the Editorial or on the scite_ website. See also how ESNBU is performing here.
