Press Release: IGI Global [May 15, 2024]

IGI Global and Scite partner to fortify the next generation of citations

Brooklyn, NY May 14, 2024 - Scite, an award-winning platform used by students and researchers to discover and better understand scientific literature, has partnered with IGI Global, an independent academic publisher of research books and journals in Business and Management; Scientific, Technical, and Medical (STM); and Education, to enhance citations and create deeper research insights for its global audience.

IGI Global joins over 40 major and mid-sized publishers as they collaborate with Scite to enrich Smart Citations. Pioneered by Scite, Smart Citations go beyond traditional citations by showing citation statements, which indicate where references are used within citing articles and classify whether the paper provides supporting or contrasting evidence to the cited claim. To date, Scite has analyzed and indexed over 1.3B citation statements extracted from more than 37M full-text articles.

Smart Citations were developed using sophisticated machine learning models that extract and analyze citation statements from full-text articles at scale. This information is embedded in a citation badge that helps researchers quickly and easily see how and why an article has been cited and engaged with it in subsequent research -- providing a more nuanced and richer source of information than a simple citation count and list of cited articles without context.

IGI Global has integrated Smart Citation badges into its platform, adding to the over 3M articles that display Smart Citations from other publishers such as Wiley, The Royal Society, Wolters Kluwer, The American Chemical Society and The National Academy of Sciences.

Josh Nicholson, co-founder of Scite and Chief Strategy Officer of Research Solutions, remarked, "We're proud to collaborate with IGI Global as we expand our deployment of Smart Citations. Together, we can make research more discoverable, understandable, and ultimately reliable. IGI Global is an independent academic publisher focused on STM, Business, Management, and Education key components shaping our collective future."

Melissa Wagner, Vice President of Editorial at IGI Global, shares the same sentiment regarding the collaboration, stating, "We view this as another invaluable tool that supports researchers as well as our esteemed contributors accessing our platform to better understand the context of how IGI Global's published content is being utilized in driving research and innovation. As an independent and thus agile publishing house, IGI Global looks forward to furthering its partnership with Scite to offer even more innovative, supportive, and efficient ways to connect researchers with the content they need and further showcase its impact worldwide."
