Summary
An Introduction to Systematic Reviews provides an overview of the nature, logic, diversity and process of undertaking systematic reviews as part of evidence informed decision making. It is a short, accessible and technically up-to-date book covering the full breadth of approaches to reviews from statistical meta analysis to meta ethnography. The content is divided into five main sections covering: approaches to reviewing; getting started; gathering and describing research; appraising and synthesizing data; and making use of reviews and models of research use. As systematic reviews become included in many more graduate-level courses this book answers the growing demand for a user-friendly guide
