Key Event Relationship Description
Evidence Collection Strategy
The majority of papers used in evidence supporting the key event relationship were found through AbstractSifter, a Microsoft Excel-based application that extracts papers from PubMed. AbstractSifter ranks abstracts based on their relevance through key search and filter terms. Initial papers were found through the search engine, Google Scholar, utilizing the search terms “Kisspeptin” and “estrogen”. This search yielded 11600 search results but only papers found on the first page of results were further examined. These papers were used to help curate search and filter terms used in Abstract Sifter. An additional search using CSU Long Beach’s One Search engine with key terms “GPR54” and “Kisspeptin” was also done in support of further curating search and filter terms for Abstractsifter. In this search, 3395 papers were initially found and only papers on the first page of the search were initially read. In AbstractSifter, 2 different searches were done to curate a subset of 71 papers. Search terms for the 2 searches included “kisspeptin AND GPR54” and “danio rerio AND kisspeptin” which yielded an initial set of 521 and 60 results respectively. Filter terms for the 2 searches included “estr AND LH” and “estr” which yielded 58 and 13 papers. Additional sources used towards the weight of evidence were found through sources in papers curated in the AbstractSifter search.
