Site Tools



AutoLit is Nested Knowledge's platform for performing a review. On AutoLit, you can Search for studies, Screen out studies that are not relevant to your research, Tag relevant studies, and Extract quantitative data, as well as write your Manuscript. For more information and a brief overview of the AutoLit tool, explore the pages below!

If you complete a review on AutoLit, you will automatically generate the interactive, data-driven visuals presented in Synthesis.

Get Started

  • See our Get Started page to find a walk-through of the tasks to start a 'nest' (an interactive, updatable review in AutoLit).
  • Want to try out the software in an already-existing project? See our Demos, which you can edit and practice in!

The AutoLit Workflow

By creating a review in AutoLit, you automatically create interactive, visual outputs on Synthesis. To see the connections between the AutoLit tasks and Synthesis outputs, see the figure below:


Other Resources

Systematic reviews are complicated! Here are some further resources to help with your study design and nest building:

  • Synthesis: The process outlined above creates interactive data-visualizations in our Synthesis software.
  • Organizations give you capabilities like inviting all collaborators at once, overseeing projects, and providing and using Organizational Templates.
  • Study Inspector is your one-stop page in a nest to view, filter, and edit any study's content.
  • Best Practices for Review: If you need guidance on how to design, perform, or draft a systematic review, see our guidance documents!
