About the service

The University Library's systematic review service is aims to support  medical and human sciences postgraduate students who need to conduct a  systematic review as part of their studies. We can offer feedback and guidance at different stages of your research on:

  • The range of search terms you have accumulated and how you can expand them.
  • Which databases and other subject resources that could be used to supplement those already used.
  • How to replicate searches on other (alternative) databases.
  • Search checking – this may take several steps as your search/es are modified and developed.

If you have any queries about this service please email:

Getting started

If you are unsure of the range of resources that are available for your subject, have a look at the subject guide for your school, and also explore the guides for related disciplines. These contain details of the main resources commonly used by those subjects; the database sections give a summary of the research areas those databases cover. You may come across other resources you may not have previously thought of!

Explore the Specialist Library Support workshops and online resources. Many of these will provide useful building blocks from getting you started to developing your research techniques further.

When contacting us include as much detail as possible about your searches and preparatory work for the review so that we are better prepared and more able to help you.
