Search strategies for systematic reviews

Systematic reviews use transparent and replicable methods to locate, evaluate and synthesize all research relevant to a particular question. They are most commonly found in health, medicine and psychology. Therefore, this workshop will focus on developing a search strategy for identifying literature from these disciplines.

This workshop will cover:

  • What is a systematic review?
  • Key features of the systematic review process
  • Identifying appropriate databases, keywords and subject headings (e.g. MeSH)
  • Planning a search using the PICO and SPICE frameworks
  • Building an effective search strategy
  • Search techniques including truncation, wildcards and proximity operators
  • Translating searches across different databases
