(23 Nov 2022) scite, an award-winning tool that helps students and researchers discover and understand research findings more efficiently through Smart Citations, has partnered with SPIE, the international society for photonics and optics, to enhance the citation experience on the SPIE Digital Library.
Pioneered by scite, Smart Citations go beyond traditional citations by showing citation statements—the in-text sentences where references are used— the section they appear within the citing articles, and a classification indicating whether the paper provides supporting or contrasting evidence to the cited claim from the referenced work.
The SPIE Digital Library is the world’s largest collection of optics and photonics applied research. With more than 550,000 publications spanning biomedicine, communications, sensors, defense and security, manufacturing, electronics, energy, and imaging, the SPIE Digital Library is the most extensive research database available on optics and photonics research and includes the Society’s 14 journals, conference proceedings, presentation videos, posters, and eBooks.
To date, scite has partnered with over two dozen major publishers, analyzing and indexing over 1.1B citation statements extracted from more than 30M full-text articles. Smart Citations will be added to SPIE articles, adding to the already 3M articles that display Smart Citations from other publishers like Wiley, The Royal Society, ACS, and The National Academy of Sciences.
