Sciome’s SWIFT-Active Screener software was listed as one of the best among 15 reference screening tools mentioned in a recent feature analysis in ALTEX: Software tools for literature screening in systematic reviews in biomedical research (Van der Mierden S, Tsaioun K, Bleich A, Leenaars CHC). The analysis was designed to compare reference screening tools and enable researchers to select the most appropriate tool for their needs. Authors described that SWIFT-Active Screener is the most efficient and intuitive tool which helps screeners save time while not missing relevant information. In the manuscript, the authors tested support for 21 features and features were categorized as “mandatory,” “desirable,” and “optional.” The manuscript lists SWIFT Active Screener as one of the only few tools that support all mandatory features and authors recommends it as one of the appropriate choices.
