journey based on systematic review methodology
what is it
a journey structured from the methodology of systematic review is a research tool, a secondary study, developed from the review of primary studies. the systematic review seeks to identify, analyze and interpret all available evidence on a given topic, in a reproducible and impartial manner.
when it came
the first study considered as a systematic review was the book by Archibald (Archie) Cochrane, “Effectiveness and Efficiency”, published in 1971
why to use
through the application of a systematic review journey, it is possible to retrieve, select, analyze and evaluate the results of relevant primary studies on a topic, systematizing the data and interpreting the evidence found in them.
when to use
a systematic review journey is important in the field of research to update understandings on a given topic, supporting decisions that need scientific validation, as well as to raise new questions and point out new research paths.
how to use
the systematic review journey has nine points of divergence that must be applied to structure the research dynamics. for each methodology topic, we put together a divergence kit in strategeegia.digital with questions to help organize the review steps and structure the methodological process.
each step of the systematic review was converted into a divergence kit, generating the six kits listed below:
- the question
- the databases
- the keywords
- selection criteria
- search results
- article analysis
- article grouping
- the numbers
- the synthesis
