System is a public resource being built by and for the world. We invite systems thinkers from all walks of life — research, design, data science, journalism, engineering, policy, medicine, etc. — to join us in our mission to relate everything.
The current public beta release benefited from consultations and testing over three years with hundreds of data scientists, researchers, and scholars.
"As an epidemiologist, one of the most time-intensive aspects of my work is synthesizing evidence from the ever-expanding literature. System Pro not only simplifies this process, helping me to discover and keep track of findings that would otherwise be buried deep in the biomedical data, it also contextualizes it in a way that facilitates systemic understanding and exploration."
“I would use this over Google Scholar and PubMed. Having the statistics right on hand would save me hours and hours of research…and especially in my field, this is so helpful when events like a pandemic hits and we’re all in the most rushed state to gather the existing research.”
"It was easy to use and I appreciated the summary statement. I am confident that researchers and health professionals will find this tool very useful."
"This is very exciting and completely novel. It presents a new kind of search that opens your line of thought.”
"I like this more than PubMed because it gave me stats right away and it even shows me research I didn't know to look for."
"It’s faster than PubMed, especially if you don’t know boolean searches. This is very helpful."
"Even though my searches were very specific, the papers retrieved with System Pro's search were more relevant than in PubMed. With PubMed, I get many suggested papers that are often not relevant to my topic..."
This is great because I always have to go back to the data. I ask, “Is this a good study? Is it applicable? Generalizable? What was the sample size? Is this biased?” System Pro solves what I’m doing in my head on my own that takes up so much time.
Openness is one of our core values as a Public Benefit Corporation. Here’s how we plan to realize it:
The System community is committed to maintain a positive, inclusive, and constructive approach while helping to build System. Our Code of Conduct explains how we expect community participants to interact with each other.
