Abstract: Any research work involves a thorough bibliographic search, in order to identify and locate bibliography on the subject in question. A manually performed analysis of all available information is a tedious and repetitive task, challenging and time-consuming. Using a computer application can alleviate the burden and simplify the researcher's work. With this purpose, the present work consisted of the development of a web application, using the GPL software R and different text mining packages, allowing to tabulate the obtained information from a PubMed search and showing it graphically. This speed its analysis up, being performed more quickly and effective. Its structure in blocks, makes it use friendly, and the application of text mining methods and multivariate statistics, allows the extraction of useful and important information from the unstructured data of the abstracts. Sharing the application on the internet, makes it available for any user, even those without knowledge in programming languages. The application is aimed to the study of toxicities in radiotherapy treatments for different locations and has been applied to the specific topic "toxicities in prostate radiotherapy treatments".
