Recite Help: Results - Split Screen


The split screen feature within Recite allows you to see your citations side by side with your reference list (or annotated article).

To switch to split screen view, click the split screen icon on the left hand side of the black bar at the top of the results page (highlighted below). To return to the standard view, click the icon to the left of it.

When clicked, your reference list is shown next to your citations (rather than underneath).

If you click the button a second time, the annotated article is displayed beside your citations instead.

These split screen views enable you to compare your citations with your reference list and annotated article in a way that negates the need to keep jumping up and down the page.

Split: In-text and Reference list

With our reference list on the right hand side (the detail split screen view), we can easily check our citations against our reference list.

When you hover over a citation in the left hand side, which matches with a reference in the right hand side, that entry is highlighted (if it's in view).

The same applies the other way around (hovering over a reference)

Where you have a citation issue like "Check: No references for year (2021) match these author(s)", you can click the "2021" in that message to automatically filter the right hand side reference list by that year. Therefore you can instantly sanity check that message, confirming that no references match these authors. You might find the author you actually meant though, so this can be really handy.

In the screenshot above, we can see that having clicked "2006", the reference list entries are now filtered by that year. Clicking the year again, resets the filter.

Split: In-text and Annotated article

With our annotated article on the right hand side, we can get clearer context regarding our citations, by seeing where exactly this fits within our document.

In this view, it's best to turn off "Show only issues" on our citation list, as this enables us to use a clever Recite feature.

In this view, all citations on the left hand side become clickable, jumping directly to the point in the article on the right hand side. The same is true the other way around, so you can navigate to a citation in the annotated article and click it to automatically bring the citation in to view on the left hand side.
