Darnall Medical Library offers a Systematic Review service to WRNMMC researchers in writing a systematic review.
The service also offers lectures about a systematic reviews writing process.
To request an information expertise in a systematic review writing, please submit a Systematic Review Request.
There are many guides on the process of writing systematic reviews, so it is imperative that researchers use standards and guidelines for writing a systematic review. The two most-widely guides are the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions and Finding What Works in Health Care (IOM Standards for Systematic Reviews).
There are also guides on writing specific types of reviews such as the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Review of Diagnostic Test Accuracy and Methods Guide for Effectiveness and Comparative Effectiveness.
The evaluation and assessment of published literature is an important step in the systematic review preparation process. The standards and checklists are used to assess the quality of different types of published literature.
