Librarian can partner with you and advise on how to start a systematic review.
Basic Service includes:
Students needing help with systematic reviews can contact Research Support Librarian to learn about the process.
Systematic review service is available to faculty, residents and students. Services include:
A systematic review is an authoritative account of existing evidence using reliable, objective, thorough and reproducible research practices.
A systematic review identifies, appraises and synthesizes the evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a given research question.
Explicit methodologies are used, which are aimed at minimizing bias and producing reliable findings.
The search strategy used in the review ideally should follow established guidelines, should be comprehensive, reproducible and documented.
The Cochrane Handbook (188.8.131.52) states: Systematic reviews of interventions require a thorough, objective and reproducible search of a range of sources to identify as many relevant studies as possible. This is a major factor in distinguishing systematic reviews from traditional narrative reviews and helps to minimize bias and therefore assist in achieving reliable estimates of effects.
