Bodleian iSkills for the Medical Sciences Division and OUH staff: Introduction to systematic reviews & evidence syntheses - searching for studies

In this online workshop you will be introduced to the principles underpinning the conduct of literature searches for systematic reviews and evidence syntheses:

•    Formulating a search strategy to address research questions
•    Applying methodological search filters to restrict by study type
•    Choosing appropriate databases and search engines
•    Searching for grey literature and ongoing studies
•    Documenting and reporting your search
•    Storing and managing references

This is an introductory session to the methodologies that underpin the searching process for a systematic review.  There won’t be an opportunity to search different databases during this session. For practical help on searching databases, please have a look at the search skills tutorials https://libguides.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/medsci/training or contact our outreach librarians to arrange a 1-2-1 virtual appointment via hcl-enquiries@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.
