This session will cover tips for undertaking the literature searching required in “systematic reviews”, including: planning an appropriate search strategy, database searching tips including using MeSH and other indexes, using search filters, documenting the search process, managing references using RefWorks.

This session may not be useful for you if you are not going to be carrying out a “systematic review” as part of your research. A “systematic review” attempts to identify, appraise and synthesize all the empirical evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a given research question. “Systematic reviews” are common research elements in healthcare sciences, psychology, social sciences, and becoming more important in the Natural Sciences.
