Lehigh University Libraries - Library Guides


Overview of Capabilities


The library now has a one year trial to the database scite, which enables users to identify scholarly debates. 


Student uses:

  •  enables upper undergraduate and graduate students discover scholarly debates and unresolved research areas on which they can write class papers;
  • helps identify topics for theses or dissertations.

Researcher uses:

  • can help identify shape research agendas by enabling discovery of topics that require further work;
  • email alerts can help track support or disagreement with a researcher's prior published results;
  • can be useful in writing review articles that discuss opposing views.

This guide provides a "sample exercise" and points to resources for your further exploration of advanced or more sophisticated uses of the database.

Feedback welcome . . .

Please contact the science librarian with any comments about how you found scite useful:

  • if you are a student, did it help in writing a paper? If you are a researcher, did it help you identify a topic for a research agenda?
  • did you use it with other databases?
