Are you thinking about conducting a systematic review or other type of evidence synthesis research? Perhaps utilizing systematic review methods is a requirement in preparation for your comprehensive exams or as part of your dissertation? Maybe you don’t know anything about them and you’d like to know more? Systematic Reviews were originally born from the Evidence Based Practice movement in the health sciences and are gaining favor in the social sciences as a way to comprehensively and systematically review the literature in order to answer a well-defined research question. The purpose of conducting a systematic review or an evidence synthesis study is to inform best practices and/or policy, and to identify gaps in the literature.

Join Emily Hart, Science Librarian / Research Impact Lead and Anita Kuiken, Falk College of Sport & Human Dynamics Librarian / Research Impact Team member as they share more about what makes this type of research unique, how it compares with other research methods, and the steps involved in in the systematic review process.
