Take your literature review one step further. This workshop is geared towards graduate students and researchers who wish to conduct a systematic review for either a thesis, coursework or journal publication. A ‘systematic review’, as opposed to a traditional literature review, uses a structured methodology to answer a focused research question. It is transparent, reproducible, and involves an exhaustive search of the literature using explicit criteria for study selection. By the end of this workshop you will have gained an understanding of systematic review methods in the social sciences and the components of a systematic search. Liaison librarians Jackie Stapleton and Sarah Brown have extensive experience as collaborators on systematic review research teams and will be drawing directly from their experiences for this presentation.
