## Load the refsplitr sample dataset "BITR" 
data(BITR) 
BITR_clean <- authors_clean(BITR)

## The output of authors_clean is a list with two elements, which can be assigend to dataframes.
BITR_review_df <- BITR_clean$review
BITR_prelim_df <- BITR_clean$prelim

## Users can save the these dataframes outside of R as .csv files.
## The "review_df.csv" is then used to review the groupID or authorID assignments and make
## any necessary corrections. The function "authors_refine" is used to load and merge the changes 
## into R and create a dataframe used for analyses.
