When a paper is submitted, VeriCite scans for matching text in our VeriCite web-crawler database and in your private institutional repository. VeriCite then takes the top most advanced sentences from the paper and submits them to an external search engine for a third level of search. A preliminary report, based on the VeriCite database and your institutional repository, is displayed right away. If you see a Report Is Not Yet Complete Message, this means that the external search results have not yet returned and you will need to view the report again later to see all of the results. Typically, this only happens the first time a report is viewed.
