A high quality systematic review should:
- Identify all relevant published and unpublished evidence on a specific research topic
- Select studies or reports for inclusion
- Assess their quality
- Synthesize the findings in an unbiased way
- Interpret the findings and present a balanced and impartial summary
A helpful resource for systematic reviews: the Community Guide for evidence-based findings of the Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF). Here you'll find systematic reviews for public health, with reviews on specific public health topics containing findings and recommended interventions. Filter the results by "topic," "audience," "setting," and more.
If you're conducting a systematic review for the first time or if you want to ensure you find all of the relevant literature, please Ask a Librarian.
