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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
