Question and Answer

Which databases should I search when doing a systematic review?

No single database contains all the relevant literature on a topic, so limiting searches to a single database substantially increases the risk of missing important articles on your topic.

The appropriate resources to search will depend on your research question(s) and outcomes of interest, among other factors. A librarian can help you determine which databases to search for your topic.
