ssifs: Stochastic Search Inconsistency Factor Selection

Evaluating the consistency assumption of Network Meta-Analysis both globally and locally in the Bayesian framework. Inconsistencies are located by applying Bayesian variable selection to the inconsistency factors. The implementation of the method is described by Seitidis et al. (2022) <arXiv:2211.07258>.
