Question and Answer
How do I get help with a systematic review?
Health sciences librarians are trained in designing and conducting searches for systematic review methods. At the health sciences library in Tucson, librarians can provide two levels of help with systematic reviews: consultation and collaboration.
Consultation is available to all UA health sciences faculty, staff, students, and trainees.
Review the Libraries’ systematic review intake form to learn what information we need from you before we can help you with your project.
UA Health Sciences librarians will not begin work on literature searches for systematic reviews until a draft protocol has been provided, because a completed protocol can inform the search strategies and resources chosen by the librarian. The draft protocol should conform to guidelines consistent with your discipline and type of review, and include a description of the research question, the research team, and the evidence synthesis process you plan to follow.
