Computational statistical methods applied on conducting scientific literature reviews Barahona, Igor


In the last two decades the number of published articles and the amount of digital information has grown exponentially. This perspective increases the complexity on performing accurate and objective literature reviews. In this talk, a novel methodology based on computational statistics is introduced for investigating datasets composed by abstracts of published articles. We address to questions such as how is vocabulary commonly used in science What are the most relevant topics for the studied journals Which articles are the most influential What words do authors prefer Tow study cases, which comprises easy-to-read visual representations, are provided to illustrate how this methodology can answer the previous questions.
