In the beginning of 2021, ODISSEI and ASReview have started a collaboration to support researchers who wish to use this new digital tool for conducting systematic literature reviews at a much faster pace. ODISSEI’s Social Data Science Team (SoDa) will be available to support new use cases and they will work together with the ASReview team on further improving the tool. On the ODISSEI and ASReview Collaboration web page, you can read more about the possibilities to use the tool and participate in its further development.
Anyone who goes through the process of screening large amounts of texts such as scientific abstracts for a systematic review, knows how labor intensive this can be. With the rapidly evolving field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the large amount of manual work can be reduced by software using active learning. By using the open-source tool ASReview, published in Nature Machine Intelligence, you can not only save time, but you can also increase the quality of your screening process. Moreover, you can easily run simulation studies on labelled data testing the performance of many different models.
To learn more about the development of ASReview and the potential benefits for conducting your systematic literature review, sign up for the ODISSEI Lunch Lecture of prof. dr. Rens van de Schoot (UU): ‘ASReview: Saving Time and Energy for Systematic Review’. The lecture takes place on 30 March between 12 and 1 pm.
