In MLM-AI, product searches are defined in a Monitor, and Reviews are their results for a date period. Reviews contain the search hits for users to analyse and screen.
Once the monitor is configured, results are produced 'periodically' or 'on request' under the Reviews tab.
Click on the Reviews menu to see a summary list of reviews in progress and recently completed. This screen allows users to rank and select the next review to work on.
Articles for review are categorized in four different tabs as listed below:
1. In-progress - Reviews where articles are pending screening
2. Completed - Reviews where 100% of articles have been screened, or that have been set to Completed by the review owner.
3. Processing - Reviews scheduled by the system, or actively being processing.
Reviews Page
Within a tab, it is possible to filter reviews according to keywords, and sort by a number of criteria. It is also possible to select optional summary fields to be shown in the reviews list. Example: Here I have sorted the result for paracetamol.
Sort Reviews according to keywords
Adding terms to the search box matches the Monitor title field. The search box also accepts more specific queries using a mini-language. Examples:
monitor:paracetamol start:jun
Matches all results with "paracetamol" in monitor title and start date of June
rundate:july 2021
Matches all results with run date of July 2021
start:jun 2021 end:sep 2021
Matches all results with results start date between June 2021 and September 2021.

The Review Lifecycle

The tabbed view in the Review summary page groups reviews by completion status:
  • The In Progress tab are all reviews where screening decisions need to be finalized. A review stays in progress until 100% of abstracts receive at least one screening decision (unless the status is manually changed by the user)
  • The Completed tab contains reviews where 100% of screening has been done.

Archiving Reviews

Completed reviews can be Archived once all work is done (including QC).
  • Archived reviews are no longer visible from the Completed tab, but can still be retrieved using the Find tab (see below)
To Archive a review:
  • Select the Completed tab
  • Select reviews you wish to archive
  • Click the Archive icon indicated below. You will be prompted for confirmation of the action.

Moving to Completed Status

You can also move a In-Progress review to Completed using the same process. This is useful in cases where screening is done but screening decisions are not expected to cover 100% of the abstracts.
  • Select the In Progress tab.
  • Select articles to move to Completed status
  • Click the Completed icon indicated below. You will be prompted for confirmation of the action

  • The review start and end dates must be contained in the selected date range.

The Processing Tab

The Processing tab shows the status of not yet completed reviews. These can be manually submitted reviews still being processed (see On Demand reviews below) or scheduled by the system. If, for example, you have active scheduled monitors that run weekly, you will see results for the following week in progress and their respective ETA.
