  • Searching for Systematic Reviews 

This lesson is based on UCL Library Services' face-to-face training session 'Introduction to Search Strategies for Systematic Reviews of Interventions'. This is an advanced session that takes literature searching beyond the basics. The session aims to  provide an insight into carrying out a structured, comprehensive, replicable search using biomedical sciences literature databases and focuses on intervention-based systematic reviews. The learning points can readily be applied to other types of systematic review. Please note that GOSH staff can also access this tutorial by logging in as guests.
