Are you thinking about undertaking a systematic review? Does it work in your discipline? In this one-hour session, participants will learn what sets apart a systematic review from other types of original research literature. By the end of the session, you will be able to describe the steps of the review process, apply an approach to frame precise research questions, evaluate systematic reviews using established guidelines, and reflect on whether a systematic review is the best option for your research goals. Attend as a stand-alone, or as part 1 of 3 on a series of workshops to develop skills and use of tools available to assist with conducting comprehensive literature reviews.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Define Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses study types
  • Describe how to evaluate the rigor of systematic reviews using PRISMA, Cochrane and IOM guidelines
  • Evaluate a systematic review using the PRISMA Checklist
  • Consider the role of systematic reviews in your discipline
  • Identify the steps and resources needed to conduct a rigorous systematic review
  • Identify how University Libraries can assist faculty and graduate researchers in conducting systematic reviews
