Question and Answer
Who should be on my systematic review team?
Many steps in the systematic or scoping review process must be performed by more than one individual and/or require individuals with specialized skills.
At a minimum, your team will need three people, including:
- Two individuals who can independently perform screening and data extraction.
- An individual with data management skills or experience, who will be responsible for the design of screening and data extraction forms and other data management responsibilities such as data cleaning, storage, and report generation.
- A librarian to develop the search strategy and identify databases and other resources to search.
- An individual with expertise in statistical analysis if you are planning to conduct a meta-analysis.
