Working on a Systematic Review?

As the number of primary research studies continues to grow, there is increasing interest in synthesizing these separate studies. Many investigators are exploring the systematic review methodology as a way to discover and pull together what is known about a topic.

The systematic review methodology requires a comprehensive, transparent, and repeatable search to enable discovery of both known and unknown papers on a topic. These searches require thorough knowledge of the search tools PubMed, Embase, Cochrane, and others.

If you are considering writing a systematic review, contact the library. We will work with you to develop a comprehensive approach that meets the requirements for conducting a systematic review of the literature. We will also provide you with:

  • EndNote libraries of de-duplicated results
  • Tables with detailed search strategies
  • Narratives of the search methodology
  • PRISMA diagrams of search results
