Connected Papers is a cool new tool for academic research that I learned about through Pedro de Bruyckere. I would strongly encourage you to go to his blog post for a more detailed explanation, but it basically creates visual “webs” of cited sources in academic papers.
I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Academic Research.
I agree – I like the site. But they rely on Semantic Scholar for their paper data, and that site is pretty shoddy in terms of accurate paper information. I publish academic papers and I’ve found two so far where the titles were misspelled and one date was 10 years off. I’d encourage the Connected Papers group to push Semantic Scholar to do a better job editing their product.
