An introduction to the what, why, and how of systematic reviewing
Time & Location
About the Event
Are you considering doing a systematic review but aren’t sure where to start? Or perhaps you’ve done one before but would like a refresher? More and more often, researchers are considering, and being expected to conduct, systematic reviews as a way of assimilating and synthesising research knowledge on a particular topic. But systematic reviews are only as robust as the methods used to conduct them. In this session we will cover the basics of systematic reviewing, including what it is, how it’s different from other types of review, why it’s important, and key steps involved. We also demonstrate different tools you can use to help the process, including searching and screening, and data analysis and presentation. We will NOT be covering meta-analysis in any depth, which was covered in a previous session. Please come prepared to engage in some small group work / discussions.
