Training and support
The Libraries' Research Support team offers training on systematic review searching to cohorts of research students through the Graduate School and by arrangement with programme tutors.
We are also able to offer consultation on individual search strategies for research students and staff.
To request a training session or ask about your search strategy, please contact the Research Support team.
The Libraries' Teaching and Learning team has developed an online toolkit 'Conducting a systematic review: a student guide' which provides an overview of the process and interactive tests to aid understanding. The toolkit is available to University of Nottingham students and staff and forms part of the 'On Course for your Masters' NOOC (Unit 5.4).
The School of Health Sciences have produced a short reusable learning object (RLO) called What is a meta-analysis? It provides an introduction to the basic concepts of meta-analysis, which is an important and valuable tool for summarising data from multiple studies.
Read our list of suggested books and e-books on systematic review which you can identify through NUsearch.
Two well-established, comprehensive courses on systematic review are run at the University each year:
In addition, there is a 10-credit module called 'Systematic Reviews' for PGT and PGR students that runs in the Spring Semester (campus code: NURS4015).
