What is a systematic review?

A systematic review uses all the existing research and is sometime called secondary research (research on research).

The purpose of a systematic review is to deliver a thorough summary of all the available primary (original) research in response to a research question. 

Guidance and links to more information on conducting systematic reviews can be found on the Library Postgraduates and Researchers pages.

You can also make an appointment with the Learning and Teaching Librarian for further help.

More information on conducting a systematic review can also be found on the Sage Research Methods database.
