A Systematic Review is an attempt to gather all evidence, both published and unpublished, in order to accurately synthesize and report results to answer a well-defined research question. Key to the process is both exhaustive and transparent searching and reporting methodologies. Multiple steps are suggested and/or required to minimize risk of bias.
The goal of a Systematic Review is to provide an accurate summary of all results on a topic. This helps a reader find and understand the best evidence in a short amount of time.
Resources, tools, and guidelines are available to help you succeed.
