Support can be offered at different stages of your research and advice can be given on:
The University Library's systematic review service is primarily aimed at medical and human sciences postgraduate students (including those who are also staff) whose degree course explicitly specifies that a systematic review is required as part of their studies.
The service is an advisory service. The Library cannot conduct systematic reviews on behalf of staff, students or research/project groups.
If you are a postgraduate student embarking on a systematic review and need help with your searches, this guide should be a good starting point. If you have carried out some preliminary searches and you would like us to look at these you can send them to us using the channels outlined below.
The systematic review service offers feedback and guidance on your searches via email or appointment.

"Thank you very much for your comments [sent via email]. These have been really very useful and have made me think about my search terms from another perspective."
"Thanks for responding so quickly, its really helpful to hear someone else's opinion. I'm relieved that I'm not doing it entirely wrong and it is just a very specialist area. I will run the searches again using the correct truncation terms, and think a bit more about the types of search terms I could use."
"Thanks so much for all the detailed information. This really is a great help."
