The Health Sciences Library Systematic Review Search Services

The St. Michael’s Hospital Health Sciences Library supports clinician, staff, and student research through consultation and reference services, as well as teaching and learning opportunities through workshops and seminars.

  • providing advice on various steps in conducting a systematic literature review;
  • creating and documenting comprehensive literature searches;
  • making software recommendations for citation and data management;
  • writing the literature search methods for the manuscript according to PRISMA or other appropriate guidelines.
