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.

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
