This release of ChemMeta includes a variety of enhancements that provide users with the ability to filter and sort scientific literatures by Praedicat's proprietary general acceptance score. The general acceptance score measures the degree to which the peer-reviewed scientific literature supports the hypothesis that exposure to a chemical causes bodily injury.
The chemical list view now includes more search and filtering capabilities (1) as well as the ability to filter and sort scientific literatures by the current and projected general acceptance score (2). Within the chemical list view, the chemicals table provides summary statistics describing the peer-reviewed literature addressing hypotheses that exposure to a chemical causes one or more bodily injuries. Selecting a row in the chemicals table reveals in the adjacent harms table detailed information for each bodily injury hypothesis related to the selected chemical (3). Within the harms table, users can select a range of publication years to show how general acceptance scores and article counts change between the selected years (4).
This release adds a new table, the chemical-harm table, that provides summary statistics describing the peer-reviewed literature addressing the hypothesis that exposure to a chemical causes a bodily injury. Each row of the table represents a different chemical-harm hypothesis. This table allows users to explore scientific literatures at the chemical-harm hypothesis level as opposed to at the chemical level (which may reflect multiple chemical-harm hypotheses). There are more than 2,100 chemical-harm hypotheses represented in the chemical-harm table. The chemical-harm table supports similar search, filter, and sorting functionality to that available in the chemicals table.
The scientific articles table is now organized by bodily injury hypothesis and supports additional search and filtering capabilities.
