Systematic reviews (1 of 3): finding the evidence

A systematic review collates and synthesises the findings from critically appraised studies to provide high-level evidence in answer to a clearly formulated question.

This workshop covers:

  • overview of key steps in conducting a systematic review
  • introduction to key guidelines and reporting standards
  • key elements in a protocol
  • selecting appropriate databases
  • developing an answerable research question
  • creating a search strategy balancing precision and inclusiveness
  • remapping the strategy across different search platforms

Undertaking a scoping review instead? The systematic approach to searching covered in this workshop is also part of scoping review methodology, and both review types will be accommodated.

Please note: the Systematic Review series primarily supports health disciplines. If you are undertaking a review where you need to search systematically/comprehensively, but are not following specific systematic review methodology, you may find that the EDGE sessions ‘Searching for your literature review’ and ‘Finding grey literature’ better meet your needs.
