Title WebStress: A web interface to explore a multidatabase bibliographic corpus on occupational stress
Bibliographic information Oct.-Dec. 2000, Vol.14, No.4, p.283-296. Illus. 31 ref.
Abstract In this literature study on occupational stress, eight databases belonging to different fields (medicine, psychology, etc.) from different countries were searched. More than 26,000 references on occupational stress were gathered. A system called WebStress was developed for reformatting the data, removing duplicates, and searching the corpus with advanced features (using clustering, a specialized thesaurus on stress and Boolean queries). In addition to the usual bibliographic queries on a specific database such as Medline, WebStress provides bibliometric analysis of the corpus, which might contribute to a detailed analysis on occupational stress in order to highlight the networks of researchers and to find the main topics studied in this area. WebStress is being further developed and is not yet commercially available.
