Every day, many articles are published in many journals. The steady increase in publications makes it impossible for us to stay up to date on every development and knowledge gap within our field and adjacent fields. Systematic literature reviews and meta analyses can help us in summarizing the current state of research on relevant topics. However, such reviews and analyses are often not conducted because of their time-consuming procedure. Fortunately, there is a novel tool which can help us with this: ASReview LAB. This is a free and open-source artificial intelligence tool, developed by a team of researchers at Utrecht University. It helps to screen large amounts of text using state-of-the art active leaning techniques. In the first presentation, Joël Hendrix will introduce you to this new software and share her experiences as a user. Joël is a PhD candidate at Radboud University (Behavioural Science Institute) and her research focusses on how entertainment media can influence people’s openness towards underrepresented groups, and the cognitive and affective processes that play a part in this.

Another novel approach to the help researchers cope with the constant growing influx of new scientific articles within their area of interest is the use of bibliographical analyses. Unlike the traditional literature review, tooling helps researchers to analyze and plot for four different level metrics: sources, authors, documents and clustering by coupling. This approach also analyzes three knowledge structures: conceptual structure, intellectual structure and social structure. In the second presentation, Adriaan Denkers will introduce you to this approach by showing the results of a recent bibliographical analyzes of the Value of Sustainability; a study of the scientific literature. Adriaan Denkers has worked as a senior scientist for the Dutch Government, as an associate professor in psychology and criminology and (currently) as an independent social scientist.
