Researchers share their results through articles that are published and indexed in scientific databases, which are useful to consult in future research. Generally, the user interface of these databases are traditional, restrict user interaction and limit their field of view. In this paper a new interface model is proposed, based on virtual reality and natural language processing, which together provide a excellent user experience and better use of human capabilities, such as intuition and spatial cognition. In this research they are used the devices Oculus Rif and Leap Motion hardware. The case study is the exploration of scientific articles using Alicia, which is the scientific database of Peru. The motivation for this research is to contribute with better tools to optimize the tasks of literature review and facilitate the work of researchers.
