Writing Systematic Reviews

The Lamar Soutter Library has several librarians on staff that have been specifically trained in supporting the systematic review process. Librarians can assist from the early, protocol development stages through to writing the methodology of the completed review and helping with formatting and proofreading. The major role a librarian takes in the development of a systematic review is in the process of building and executing a comprehensive search that will find an exhaustive list of records based on the protocols that are relevant to the topic being reviewed. For more information, see the library’s systematic review subject resources guide and official library procedure.
