An Introduction to Systematic Literature Review Methods

Systematic reviews offer a methodology for comprehensively finding and synthesizing research evidence to answer a specific and well-defined research question. Even if you aren’t planning a full systematic review, these methods can help you add rigor and reproducibility to your literature searches. We'll also introduce other types of literature review methods like systematic maps, scoping reviews and rapid reviews.

This workshop will cover the basics to help you get started and better understand the process and implications of undertaking a systematic review. In this workshop, we’ll cover:

  • Differences between a systematic review and a traditional literature review
  • Developing a systematic review question and protocol
  • Constructing comprehensive searches and documentation
  • An overview of tools used in systematic reviews

No previous experience is necessary. Please bring a laptop as we'll be doing some hands-on activities.
