Systematic searching for evidence syntheses - Part 1

Systematic searching for evidence syntheses - Part 1 In-Person

Please note, this is a two-part workshop

Systematic searching of the literature is essential in all types of evidence synthesis.  Whether it’s a systematic review or qualitative evidence synthesis, a systematic search of information resources is the fundamental component. 

In these sessions we will cover  

  • Research question frameworks 
  • Undertaking scoping searches 
  • Developing a search strategy 
  • Documenting and reporting a systematic search strategy 
  • Using search filters / hedges 
  • Translating a search strategy across different databases 
  • Testing a search strategy 
  • Supplementary searches including citation searching 

Librarians will introduce you to the searching phase of a systematic review across 2 sessions.  

In Part 1, we will give instruction and demonstration on how to search information resources systematically.  (11th October 2023) 

In Part 2, we will break into small groups to examine search strategies that students and researchers are working on and tackle any questions or problems.  (01st November 2023). Register for the second session here.
