Systematic Reviews Track in 2020 Summer Research Programs

This guide is intended for use by the students who choose Systematic Reviews (SR) as their 2020 Summer research program. It includes resources and tools that they can use to conduct SRs.

Screening Studies

After all the included databases have been searched and all the results have been stored in a reference management tool such as EndNote, duplicate references need to be removed. Then these references can be either exported to a screening tool for the reviewers to screen or stay in EndNote for screening. There are usually three reviewers to perform screening. If reviewer 1 does not agree with reviewer 2 on a particular reference, then the reviewer 3 will join in to resolve the conflict.

Available Tools for Screening:
