Introduction

Welcome to the Systematic Review LibGuide!

This guide is created to serve as a introductory guide for researchers and PhD students who are interested, or are currently studying or researching Systematic Reviews in the field of Medicine, or other subjects. It contains information and selected resources curated by our librarians to get you started in writing a Systematic Review, in line with the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.

This LibGuide is structured in various topics of interest, pertaining to Systematic Reviews. Other than an overall introduction to Systematic Reviews and other review types, you can also find useful information that will take you through the process of transforming your research question into a search strategy - of which you can apply in bibliographic databases in order to locate all relevant studies on a topic. An overview on grey literature, with an A to Z list of useful links is also included. 

Three sections cover Structure and Documentation of Systematic Reviews, on the topics of PRISMA, Developing a Protocol, and Reference Management. Other sections you may find useful would be the PRESS checklist for search strategies, as well as information on software you can use for Systematic Reviews.
