Steps in a Systematic Review


Librarians can be involved in many parts of the systematic review process. However it is recommended that the members of the author team, along with their faculty preceptor, manage certain steps that require specific content-area and quantitative methods expertise. Librarians who collaborate on search strategy formation and/or citation management should be acknowledged in the final publication. See Defining the Role of Authors and Contributors by The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors to learn more about the role of authors and contributors

The tabs on the left describe each systematic review step in more detail, as well as provide resources and guidance.
