AI tools for literature searching and mapping

The following is a list of AI tools for literature searching and mapping. They all work a little differently but generally provide an overview of a research landscape. However, such tools are not a substitute for reading and making notes on the literature yourself in terms of your research questions and priorities (otherwise, it's not original research!).  Please also note that these tools generally can only find papers that are open access, and therefore cannot find academic articles that are behind firewalls or in subscription databases/journals (which is quite a bit of what you'll likely need for your literature review). For the latter, please see Cambridge's list of subscription article databases and our complete list of subject-based Libguides.
