SWIFT-Review Logo

SWIFT-Review (SWIFT is an acronym for “Sciome Workbench for Interactive computer-Facilitated Text-mining”) is a freely available interactive workbench which provides numerous tools to assist with problem formulation and literature prioritization. SWIFT-Review puts the systematic review expert in the driver’s seat by providing several features that can be used to search, categorize, and prioritize large (or small) bodies of literature in an interactive manner. SWIFT-Review utilizes newly developed statistical text mining and machine learning methods that allow users to uncover over-represented topics within the literature corpus and to rank order documents for manual screening.

SWIFT-Review: a text-mining workbench for systematic review.

Sciome was honored to participate in the recent 4th International Symposium on Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Laboratory Animal Studies on August 24-25, 2017 in RTP, NC. Our team’s work to create new tools and methods to automate and accelerate systematic review was featured in a number of presentations, including several posters that highlight SWIFT-Review and SWIFT-Active Screener. It was a pleasure to meet many of our active users in person and to learn more about your systematic review projects!
