You would not want to cite a retracted paper in your article or your thesis without knowing. This week we talk about how to get yourself aware of retractions, and to do a reference "health check" before you submit your writing.
As researchers, we want to stay informed about recently published research and see who are citing our work. Here we demonstrate using Scite to create dashboard for tracking citations for a list of papers.
We are excited to share this good news: HKUST started our full-feature subscription to scite, a database that analyses citation contexts; and we renewed Altmetric Explorer, a tool that captures online mentions of research papers.
In your academic writing, you may cite a work to support your findings, or you may cite to refute the argument in the cited work. Citation count ("1" in both cases) does not tell you how a work is cited. Now there are tools that can reveal citation contexts. This post introduces one of such tools: scite.
