Systematic Review Guide

What is a Systematic Review?

A Systematic review “attempts to collate all empirical evidence that fits pre-specified eligibility criteria in order to answer a specific research question.  It uses explicit, systematic methods that are selected with a view to minimizing bias, thus providing more reliable findings from which conclusions can be drawn and decisions made.”*

*Higgins JPT, Green S (editors). Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions Version 5.1.0 [updated March 2011]. The Cochrane Collaboration, 2011. Available from, Section 1.2.2 

As part of your systematic review project team, Becker librarians:

  • Design a comprehensive search strategy that complies with best practices and current systematic review standards
  • Translate search strategies across multiple resources
  • Provide search results using citation management software
  • Write the complete search methodology that can be included in the final systematic review manuscript
