Knowledge Synthesis: Systematic & Scoping Reviews

Questions to Ask yourself


Do you have a team?

Do you have time to complete a review?

Do you know you the methods?



Am I really doing a systematic review?

If you are an undergraduate or MSc student doing your dissertation, or a solo PGR exploring the existing research as a precursor to your own research, then you are probably producing a literature review informed by systematic methodology. The systematic review process guidance on these pages can help you with this.
