Research Search Engine MetaBUS Launches Early Next Month

Search engine MetaBUS is launching early next month. “Academics currently spend months or even years combing through published research journals to do meta-analysis — the process of summarizing past findings in a given field — as they conduct research. The team behind metaBUS has coded nearly one million journal findings, dating back to 1980, into metaBUS in the fields of organizational psychology and human resources. Instead of manually finding, reading and summarizing journal articles, metaBUS users will be able to create field level summaries in real time by classifying metadata to achieve a never-before-seen level of research curation. MetaBUS is free for registered users and includes some data from journal articles that are currently locked behind subscription paywalls.”
