Synthesizing research with a scoping review

Synthesizing research with a scoping review Online

How can we find and synthesize all of the existing research on a topic when there is so much information out there? Scoping reviews are a popular research synthesis method for systematically describing the existing literature on a topic. They are more reproducible and comprehensive than a traditional literature review and can help us to understand the scope of research in an area, identify existing gaps, and surface trends and key concepts. If you are considering developing a research synthesis project for your field, or are curious about such methods and how they apply in your discipline, please join us! You'll be provided with guidance and next steps for starting a scoping review at the end of the session. This session is aimed at graduate students, staff and faculty researchers, but anyone is welcome to join.

This is Part 2 of the Advanced and systematized literature review methods Workshop Series. Join us for one or any of these sessions. Other workshops in this series:
