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, abstract and publication name:
Users can also search according to AI tags, screening decisions, comments and source data. Lets look at how this is possible with the results query language:

Results query language

You can search results of a review using a flexible query language: In the search box, users can write queries of the form parameter: <value> parameter2: <value> parameter3: <value>
Here's an example that retrieves results containing the Identifiable patient AI tag:

  • Usage: match:key terms
Examples:
  • match:case

tag: <value>

Match only articles with a specific AI Tag. Tags can be specified as follows
  • Usage: tag:value

  • tag:patient (articles with a confirmed patient mention)
  • tag:special (articles tagged with any special situation)
  • tag:case (suspected case tag)
  • tag:keyword (articles matching user defined keywords configured in the monitor)

notag: <value>

Performs the inverse of tag: matches articles that do not contain stated tag.
  • notag:ae (articles not tagged "Suspected AE" )

by: <user>

Matches articles last updated by user matching <user>
Example:
  • by:mlmai

source: <source>

Matches articles from a given source (pubmed, doaj, crossref, etc.)

  • decision:Pending Translation
To search for articles that contain a review:
  • decision:review
To search for articles that have been QC'ed:
  • decision:qc
Note: use nodecision: to retrieve opposite results.

Composing queries

When multiple query values are used, they are treated as an AND search:
Example: Articles tagged with a special situation AND updated by user mlmai
by:mlmai tag:special
Example: Articles from the DOAJ database AND matching "paracetamol" in title or abstract:
source:doaj match:paracetamol
Example: articles tagged as Suspected Adverse AND updated by user "admin"
tag:ae by:admin
Example: Articles with the word "duplicate" in comment AND NOT tagged as a special situation.
comment:duplicate notag:special
