Systematic, Scoping, and Rapid Reviews

Library Support

Several Memorial University librarians are trained in evidence synthesis methods and are available for consultations or to join review teams subject to availability and at the discretion of the librarian.

What level of support do you need?

  1. Librarian co-author: As a member of the review team, we will look after all aspects of the literature search including database selection; design, translation, and execution of search strategies; citation management; PRISMA flow diagram; and a written search methodology. In addition, we will review the final manuscript before journal submission.  
  2. Librarian consultation: We will provide consultative support while your team develops and performs all search strategies and related activities. For this level of support we appreciate an acknowledgement for our contribution in the published manuscript.

Further information is available in our Systematic Review Policy.

Review teams may be asked to fill in the following form prior to their first meeting with a librarian:
