Try this five-part workshop series on knowledge synthesis & systematic reviews

Attend all sessions this May to get credit on your Experience Record

April 5, 2024 — 

Are you considering starting a systematic, scoping, or other knowledge synthesis project but don’t know how to get started? Attend UM Libraries’ five-part series beginning May 7 and explore all aspects of comprehensive searching for a systematic review project. If you are about to begin a project or just have questions, this series is a great place to start.

Systematic reviews

A systematic review involves the identification, evaluation, and integration of findings from multiple research studies on a particular topic. This process allows researchers to gain a deeper understanding of existing knowledge, reveal new insights and guide future research endeavours.

A previous participant had this to say: “Participating in the Systematic Review Workshop series really helped me to understand the process of embarking on a systematic review…

“In each of the sessions, the librarians explained the steps, decision points and options involved in the process of organizing and undertaking a systematic review of literature to make it a manageable undertaking that takes time, organization and teamwork, but need not be feared.”

Register for the Systematic Review 5-part series.

The series will focus on the skills needed for the processes of a systematic, scoping or other large-scale comprehensive review, with a focus on the health sciences, including:

  • Documenting
  • Searching
  • Translating
  • Deduplicating
  • Screening

Experience recordParticipants will gain a solid understanding of what is needed to complete a systematic review and why they are an essential part of evidence-based practice. Graduate students who register and attend all five sessions will receive credit on their Experience Record.

The series is open to all students and faculty and will be hosted on Zoom.
