National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (formerly Institutes of Medicine/IOM) for systematic reviews states: work with a librarian or other information specialist trained in performing systematic reviews to plan the search strategy. Norris librarians collaborate with researchers on systematic reviews and provide assistance by:
- Helping define the research question
- Identifying relevant databases to be searched
- Developing and conducting searches/search updates in selected databases
- Searching for relevant grey literature
- Delivering search results in citation management software such as EndNote.
- Providing training and support for citation management software
- Providing guidance in selecting journals for manuscript submission
- Writing the literature search methodology section for the submitted manuscript, maintaining records of search results, and following up with alerts and updates as needed
Request a systematic review consultation for systematic review support. The information you provide on the form will be used to guide your first meeting with a librarian.
