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.
