Systematic Reviews Workshop 2: Developing Your Data Collection Strategy

This workshop will cover the key concepts/skills needed to create a data collection strategy for your review project. Creating a comprehensive search strategy that is designed to capture as many relevant studies as possible and is validated using a test set, is similar to designing your data collection method in an experimental study. It requires careful planning as well as knowledge of how databases work. This is a hands-on session where attendees will work on activities throughout, in order to engage with the content and learn the related skills.

Topics to be covered:

  • Elements of a comprehensive search
  • Designing and building a comprehensive search in one database
  • Saving searches
  • Validating searches using a test set
  • Good data management practices

This is the second workshop of a three-part series of workshops on systematic reviews/knowledge synthesis. You are not required to take all three workshops in the series; you may sign up for only those that interest you.
