scite and InfoDesk Partner to Help Leading Pharmaceutical Organizations Better Discover, Understand, and Assess Research

BROOKLYN, NY — June 15, 2021 — scite, an award-winning platform for discovering and understanding research articles via Smart Citations, and InfoDesk, a leader in AI-driven data services, have partnered.

The partnership brings scite’s next generation citations, called Smart Citations, into the InfoDesk platform to better help inform research and development at major organizations served by InfoDesk. By analyzing the full-text of over 25 million scientific articles, scite has developed a novel deep learning platform that allows users to easily see how an article has been cited and if its findings have been supported or contrasted in the literature–aptly described by one librarian as, “Rotten Tomatoes but for science.”

Josh Nicholson, co-founder and CEO of scite says, “We’re very happy to be working with InfoDesk. Given their stellar track record in working with nearly all leading pharmaceutical companies and the great fit between the two platforms, I think this will be the start of something special, ultimately helping make research more efficient.”

“We’re always looking for ways to ensure that our customers have the technologies they need to be able to make effective decisions confidently.” says Lynn Epstein, InfoDesk’s COO. “This is why we’re particularly excited to be working with scite and firmly believe that this partnership will optimize research and development activities for all of our customers.”
