Abstract

Systematic Reviews provide to researchers a protocol in order to obtain scientific knowledge through the identification of relevant scientific papers, which contain research tendencies and experimentation about a specific topic. There are several studies about how to implement a systematic review, however these studies only indicate the systematic review protocol and do not provide some software tool or application to support the automation of this protocol, giving as a result that the researchers expend large amounts of time to search and identify relevant scientific articles in a manual way. Therefore, in this article is proposed a tool for systematic reviews protocol automation.
