I am conducting a literature review, and I am struggling with how to group/classify a large number of articles into different categories. Can you give me some practical advice? Are there, for example, any available software solutions that can offer some approximate groupings, and after that, I can adjust the results? I am interested in the qualitative classification of the articles based on their similarities (e.g., the similarities of their findings but not methodological similarities in which I look for the same variables etc.) I already made an excel sheet with the different sections: goal, methodology, results, etc. but even in this way I cannot easily group them because they are too many, so my brain cannot process all the information.
