Systematic Reviews Workshop 2: Developing Your Data Collection Strategy [ONLINE] In-Person

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 Zoom session where attendees will work on activities throughout, in order to engage with the content and learn the related skills.

Presenters:

University of Calgary librarian Dr Alix Hayden

University of Victoria librarian Dr Zahra Premji

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; however the information in the workshop series is scaffolded, so each workshop builds on knowledge learned in the previous workshop.

Workshop 3: The next steps: Translating, tracking, reporting and study selection. June 1, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The zoom link will be sent out via email the day before the workshop.

Note: This session will not be recorded.

*This workshop series is offered jointly by UCalgary & UVic Libraries
