Systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis projects identify and survey scholarly research on a particular topic to discover gaps, guide further research, and inform practice and policy-making. Projects range in their intended breadth and depth, level of exhaustiveness, and time frame. 

Our librarians can offer varying degrees of assistance for systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis projects, from consultations to collaboration. We can point you to tools and resources, or provide support at any step of the process, including helping you:

  • Narrow your topic and develop focused, well-defined research questions
  • Develop and register your protocol, methods, and recording guidelines
  • Design and run a sensitive search strategy using field codes and subject headings
  • Select and screen studies

Though most common in health sciences, many disciplines conduct evidence synthesis projects. For assistance with reviews outside of the health sciences, contact your librarian by subject
