Searching for Systematic Reviews, Part 1


A systematic review is a highly detailed process that attempts to collate all empirical evidence that fits pre-specified eligibility criteria in order to answer a specific research question. Systematic reviews are very prevalent in Health Sciences, but are becoming more common in Human Sciences as well.

This part 1 workshop will outline the key steps involved and will also give advice on database selection, developing your search strategy and managing your results.



By the end of the session you will have learnt how to:

  • Prepare for a systematic review
  • Search for existing systematic reviews
  • Develop your inclusion/exclusion criteria

This course will be of interest to academic staff and researchers in any relevant discipline.
