What Review is Right for You?

Many researchers say they want to conduct a systematic review, only to be dismayed by the amount of time, effort, skill, and teamwork required to pull off that feat. Even with time and a good team, the research question might not be best suited to systematic review methodology.

There are actually many other review methodologies that researchers can choose depending on their research question. We've put together a guide to make the distinctions between review types easier to understand and to help guide you in selecting the best methodology for your research question.

If a systematic review is right for you, we have a new product to assist you but there are a limited number of seats available. Covidence is a systematic reviews production tool for title/abstract screening, full-text screening, data abstraction, and quality assessment. It was designed by researchers familiar with the systematic review process to make conducting reviews more efficient. It is the primary screening and data extraction tool for Cochrane Collaboration authors.

In order to gain access to Covidence or if you have questions about which review is right for you, please contact the medical librarians to discuss your project.
