Guide outlining the steps for writing a systematic review.
Systematic review service
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.
Request literature searches on health-related topics to support research projects and publications.
