Collaborate with expert searchers to publish your systematic review. The Weill Cornell Medical Library has knowledgeable staff to guide you through this evidence-based process. Please contact the Information Desk to learn more.
Systematic review collaboration may include:
- Helping to define a research question
- Assisting in developing and registering the protocol
- Targeting specific databases and other resources to be searched
- Identifying database-specific search strategies using a combination of keywords and controlled vocabulary to maximize precision and recall
- Conducting literature searches
- Snowballing - pulling references from bibliographies, pulling "cited by" references and identifying related articles
- Delivering results into a bibliographic management tool such as EndNote or Mendeley
- Performing search updates in selected databases
- Suggesting journals relevant to areas of research
- Recommending MeSH terms and keywords for articles
- Providing access to Covidence, a systematic review tool
Once a search is completed, a librarian will write the literature search methodology section for the submitted manuscript, maintain records of search results, and follow up with alerts and updates as needed.
Librarians are co-authors on systematic review collaborations.
