New FeatureWhy Was This Source Cited?
At OpenEvidence, we are constantly working to provide the best physician-grade AI that answers your questions using the highest quality medical evidence.
Out of the universe of millions and millions of research papers, clinical guidelines, regulatory documents, and reference materials, how does OpenEvidence AI choose which sources to consult and cite in answering your questions?
We recently launched a new feature that gives some insight into this question. The References section now highlights sources that are highly relevant, from top journals, or are new research. Of course, all sources cited by OpenEvidence AI are chosen for a good reason, but this new feature allows you to dive deeper into the primary evidence on several dimensions.
What do these “Why Cited” labels mean?
  • Highly Relevant: Our proprietary evidence retrieval algorithm indicates the evidence contained in the source can be directly used to answer the question
  • Top Journal: The research is published in a highly regarded journal, such as The Lancet or New England Journal of Medicine
  • New Research: The evidence comes from research published within the last year, as of the time the question was asked
