Beyond the Search I: Protocol Development and Methodology for Systematic Reviews Webinar



Oct. 22, 2014

1:00-2:30 CT

While the literature search is likely to be the main responsibility of information professionals involved in systematic review projects, there are other aspects of these projects that would benefit from our input. In this first of two webinars, the presenters will outline the processes and tools for developing a systematic review protocol and then translating the protocol into a publishable search methodology. The session will focus on best practices and standards (including PRISMA, Cochrane, and Institute of Medicine), communication with team members, and appropriate reporting of methodology.
