Systematic Review


Trying to get that high-impact publication? Tired of inefficient literature searches? Want the introduction of your thesis to be something more? Why not perform a systematic review?

Systematic reviews are literature overviews that attempt to answer clearly defined questions, with explicit methods to identify, select, critically appraise, analyze and report data.

This 3-day course will teach you all about the different steps to take to perform a high-quality, methodologically sound and reliable literature overview, from designing a search strategy to performing meta-analyses. The course, taught by experienced Cochrane authors, is filled with workshops and exercises, thus preparing you to get started immediately on your own systematic review.
