Request a Systematic Review

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.
