What is Systematic Review?

Characteristics of a systematic review (SR):

  • a clearly stated set of objectives with pre-defined eligibility criteria for included studies
  • an explicit, reproducible methodology
  • a systematic search that attempts to identify all studies that would meet the eligibility criteria
  • an assessment of the validity of the findings of the included studies
  • a systematic presentation, and synthesis, of the characteristics and findings of the included studies.
