Systematic review service

Using the Libraries during COVID-19

Though on-campus libraries are currently closed, we are open online and here to help you with teaching, learning, and research.

Our librarians help researchers conduct systematic reviews. Systematic reviews are syntheses of all previously conducted research on a topic and represent the highest level of evidence in clinical research.  

The service is available to U of M health sciences researchers. If you are part of another U of M college or school, visit the University Libraries' Systematic Review Service webpage.

Work with librarians to increase the quality of reviews and streamline the process. Librarians help you:  

  • determine if there are existing reviews on your topic,  
  • develop and register a protocol to ensure transparency and rigor,
  • create search strategies to identify all relevant studies,
  • deliver search results formatted for citation managers and systematic review tools,
  • implement best practices for screening, risk of bias assessment, and data extraction and synthesis,
  • and write the search methodology.
