The computational literature review package (clR)

The computational literature review package (clR) is an open source offering, developed in the statistical programming language R. The code has been redeveloped and is now easier to use and greatly more efficient.

The CLR automates analysis of Scopus research articles with analyses of impact (citations), structure (co-authorship networks) and content (topic modeling of abstracts). The CLR software can be used to support three use cases: (1) analysis of the literature for a research area, (2) analysis and ranking of journals, and (3) analysis and ranking of individual scholars and research teams. We are working on adding Web of Science data.

To install the clR package go to GitHub and download vignette.R where instructions on installation and execution of clR are provided.

For further details of the CLR approach see:
