SCITE is a new-generation Citation Database for discovering and understanding research articles via Smart Citations. SCITE developed a ground-breaking innovation using AI and deep-learning techniques to determine whether the author has cited a paper that supports or contradicts the claims made by the cited paper in the citing context. The advantage this database provides over other citation databases is that the citations of the papers in this database are SMART in nature. The database analyzes the citations and identifies which citation is in SUPPORT of the paper, which CONTRADICTS the paper, and which only MENTIONS in the paper. The database allows the user to search the largest database of citation statements, with over 900 million citation statements extracted and analyzed from over 25 million full-text articles, plus over 1 billion traditional citations.
