Although there are plenty of search engines which allow you to identify citation links - paper Y cites paper X - are there any which identify what statements and summaries are attributed to paper X? You type in the DOI for paper X, and in addition to a list of which papers cite X, the list of particular sentences in each of these papers which refer to X are also received, e.g.
- "The world is round" [paper 1]
- "The curvature of the world has long been debated" [paper 2]
- "Both Flat Earth alternate theories have been proposed as to the shape of the world" [paper 3]
- "It is widely assumed that the world is round" [paper 4]
- etc etc.
If a citation search tool like this exists, can it also be used to link from declarative statements, to references cited in support in that statement?
For example, Statement == "The world is round" - 215 hits, of which:
- 139 unsupported by citations
- 24 supported by reference X
- 12 supported by reference Y
and so on.
Do any academic search engines with these capabilities already exist?
