Basics of a Systematic Review: Getting Oriented (Part 1 of 3)

Systematic reviews are one of the most misunderstood review types and are often treated as a robust literature review, when in fact they are much more. Join this webinar to learn the methodology of a systematic review and how it differs from a literature review as well as an introduction to other advanced review types.

Creating the Search for your Systematic Review (Part 2 of 3)

The search forms the foundation for a systematic review. All analysis done of the articles depends on the creation of a comprehensive and thorough search. If we think of the search as forming the basis of the project’s ‘dataset’, we know that good data is crucial to the success of a project. Join this webinar to learn where to search, how to structure your search, and how to build your search. It is strongly recommended that you watch Basics of a Systematic Review: Getting Oriented prior to watching this session.
