I want to run a grammar check on my text and hence need to do away with the parenthetical references. Is there a way in latex wherein we dont export the citations?

Example:

Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has penetrated into many do-mains besides Information technology. AI is now beyond a tooling role and isinfact applied for autonomous operations in domains like Banking- where it is used to determine creditworthiness [1], Medicine - in diagnostics [2], Construction - for Township and building planning [4] ..

  • Hi, welcome. Are the citations generated with \cite? – Torbjørn T. Jul 13 '18 at 10:58
  • When you say export, do you mean compile to PDF/DVI or do you have something else in mind? – moewe Jul 13 '18 at 10:59
  • @TorbjørnT. Yes the citations are generated with \cite – user248884 Jul 13 '18 at 10:59
  • @moewe Yes, I mean outputted to PDF or HTML, anything such. – user248884 Jul 13 '18 at 11:00
  • Depending on your exact set-up, the packages you use and what exactly you want to remove, \renewcommand*{\cite}[2][]{} might be a good first step to remove citations. – moewe Jul 13 '18 at 11:10

You can overwrite the commands you use to generate the citations with by doing this just before you start your document:

\renewcommand*{\cite}[1]{\ignorespaces}
\begin{document}

This will cause the commands to produce no output and even remove spaces that were around the citation when needed. (As suggested here)

If you use other citation commands like \citeauthor then you also want to overwrite those:

\renewcommand*{\citeauthor}[1]{\ignorespaces}

Note that the number [1] is the amount of arguments the original command takes.
