From the Office of a Systematic Review Consultant. Academic Article uri icon


  • As a systematic review consultant for over a decade, I have spent my days meeting with faculty, students, and staff across the university on systematic reviews and other research syntheses. It is interesting, challenging, and rewarding work being able to support, collaborate, and teach review methods. My work has adapted over the years to expand to multiple disciplines, consulting on other types of reviews, and using newly developed software. For this editorial, I will discuss the top five most frequently asked questions with my perspective on solutions and resources.
