Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting abstract


We proposed to use automatic citation tracking to enhance the retrieval of new evidence for updating Systematic Reviews (SR). We tested on a Cochrane review from 2003 (updated 2010) and retrieved 12 of the papers to be added (recall 85.7%). Citation tracking yields a high proportion of the required literature.
