Searching abstracts inside a Review
Use the search box to select results inside a review for faster screening
When inspecting Review Details, users can take advantage of the search box to craft custom search criteria using tags, keywords, etc using a simplified query language.

Keyword Matching

The simplest method is just to type the key terms to be matched. These will be searched in the title and publication name:

Results query language

Complex search criteria on the results of a review can be created with the results query language. In the search box, users can write queries of the form parameter: <value> parameter2: <value> parameter3: <value>
The table below summarizes the query parameters available (a detailed list is in the Query Parameters section below):
Parameter
What it does
match:
Match specified keyterms in article title and publication name
tag:
Match only articles with a specific AI Tag. (for the opposite effect use notag:
by:
Matches articles last updated by user matching <user>
source:
Matches articles from a given source (pubmed, doaj, crossref, etc.)
Matches the contents in article's comment section of the most recent screening decision (if any)

Examples

Below are examples of how to combine different criteria to retrieve results in a Review:
Task
Query
Retrieve all articles tagged as "Suspected AE"
tag:ae
Retrieve all articles containing the word "acetamoniphen" and containing a patient mention (patient tag)
match:acetaminophen tag:patient
Retrieve all articles containing a screening decision from user user1 and the word allergic reactionin the comments section.
by:juser1 comment:allergic reaction
Only articles from PubMed tagged with a special situation
source:pubmed tag:special

by:mlmai tag:special
Example: Search all abstracts from DOAJ matching with "case" in the title:
source:doaj match:case
Example: Adverse articles updated by user "admin"
tag:ae by:admin
Example: Search all articles with the word "duplicate" in content and NOT tagged as a special situation.
