Atypon Launches Scitrus, a Machine Learning-Powered Content Discovery Service, Free to Access and Use

Ed. Note: We utilize a number of content discovery services at infoDOCKET and are looking forward to using Scitrus. We will share our findings in an upcoming post. 

From Today’s Launch Announcement:

Scitrus is a new researcher tool that puts machine learning to work for each reader, generating a personalized, social media-style feed of only the latest and most relevant journal articles, news, and citation alerts.


Scitrus curates content published daily from over 30,000 authoritative sources across the web. Each reader’s feed is populated by the disciplines, journals, authors, and societies that they follow when setting up their account.

The app’s algorithms learn from every interaction, continuously improving the relevance of the feed’s content.


A free Scitrus account can be set up in just a few clicks by visiting and selecting topics  and journals of interest. Or, import publications and bibliographies from sources such as ORCID and Mendeley to pre-train Scitrus.
