Description of Proposal

In this session, participants will take part in a graduate level workshop entitled “Introduction to Systematic Reviews*”. I developed this workshop in response to increasing requests for help in understanding how to complete a systematic review. Initially those requests came primarily from the pharmacy and communication disorders graduate students to whom I liaise, but more and more requests are coming from graduate students in areas as diverse as engineering, education, fisheries, veterinary medicine, and social work. One unique aspect of the workshop is the use of sample systematic reviews to illustrate how the different steps appear in a published journal article. After the workshop content is complete, discussion will include various ways in which librarians can support graduate students working on systematic reviews.

*A systematic review is a formal research study that seeks to first identify, through a systematic and comprehensive search, all relevant literature answering a focused research question, then appraise the identified literature and finally analyze, synthesize, and present data from all studies included in the review.

What takeaways will attendees learn from your session?

Participants should leave with:

  • An understanding of what a systematic review is, how it differs from other types of reviews, and the steps involved in completing a systematic review
  • Sample handouts
  • A link to a libguide with additional resources including a sample searching worksheet, a class PowerPoint, and links to resources for documenting a review and evaluating included studies.
