Why are we having you read this document?
The short answer is that there are many different types of reviews and we would like to gain a better idea of your needs and the type of review that is most appropriate.
There is a substantial amount of work involved in conducting a formal systematic review (SR).
Experts in systematic reviews recommend librarian involvement from the outset. Roles for the librarian in a SR include:
Librarians may also help with article screening, data abstraction, and writing depending on topic and team. We are able to assist you with formulating appropriate search strategies and identify appropriate resources.
Librarians do not serve as administrative assistants or coordinators for the review. We may not be able to help if you have completed your review and need a librarian to validate it.
Please contact the systematic reviews library team with any questions as you read through this document.
