Systematic reviews involve several steps, as librarians we can help with steps 3 and 5. For Step 3, literature searching, librarians can help with principles of searching.
Librarians can also help advise on the best use of the University’s supported referencing software for managing and organising references.
PROSPERO is an international database of prospectively registered systematic reviews in health and social care. Key features from the review protocol are recorded and maintained as a permanent record. PROSPERO aims to provide a comprehensive listing of systematic reviews registered at inception to help avoid unplanned duplication and enable comparison of reported review methods with what was planned in the protocol.
Consider registering your systematic review and also searching to see whether a systematic review on your prospective topic has also been registered in order to avoid duplicating research.
