Literature Review Efficient and Systematic Literature Reviews

The Literature Review Module is a module in the DIAMONDS platform that allows researchers to perform literature reviews in an efficient and systematic manner. Literature is automatically downloaded from PubMed and kept up-to-date, thereby saving a lot of time.

A literature review administrator and reviewers work together to perform an efficient and systematic reviewing process. While the administrator sets up a project, defines a set of papers through a PubMed query (or upload) and defines the questions that need to be answered, the reviewers can quickly go through all papers answering the questions defined by the administrator. Reviewers can see all publication information including the abstract and quickly and systematically answer a set of pre-defined questions and answer-options. The administrator can monitor this process and analyze and export the results at any moment.

Through the entire process, all steps are tracked and fully traceable.
