This class will focus on tips and techniques for carrying out a successful literature search in support of a systematic review. Topics will include techniques for developing search strategies, deciding which databases to search and how to seek out grey literature for a given topic. There will also be discussion on selecting journals for hand searching, documenting search strategies, and saving and organizing references.

NOTE: We suggest that “Nuts and Bolts of a Systematic Review” be taken before “Literature Searching for a Systematic Review.”
