Given a paper, I’m looking for a quick way to see the citation contexts of papers that cite that paper, to gauge both the direction and intensity of sentiment towards the original paper and help me decide what to read first. The need this would address of mine is somewhat related to this question but specifically I want the citation contexts.

Since a few tools allow you to get the ‘cited by’ list after searching for a paper, eg. Google Scholar and Semantic Scholar, and the former actually lets you search within the citing articles, a natural next step seems to me to see the citation contexts in the summary of the search results. Is there any feature to toggle this? Or another tool that does it (whilst still being a critical platform where lots of papers will exist/have been indexed on it).

Ideas appreciated. Thanks!
