My bookshelves are already laden with "How to do it" books on systematic reviews – very few of these are readable, informative and useful. But what do I do when I need to inform tomorrow’s supervision meeting? Quite simply – I reach for this book!
The systematic review is frequently the pathway to the Master’s degree for many students, and often key to the development of a good research question. Students often find the systematic critical review and synthesis of research relevant to their research question daunting. This text provides a clear roadmap for those engaging in the process. The text provides step-by-step guidance through the systematic review, providing strategies for success, with tables and process descriptions that are extremely useful. Chapters align with the steps in the process and address each component of the review with clarity and multiple examples. While other texts may provide a broad overview of the process, strengths of the current text include its attention to detail, its practical approach to situations that may occur in the process, and its inclusion of responses to questions frequently asked by students. This text fills a gap with a much-needed reference for students and professionals for whom research evaluation is integral to success.(Susan S. Levy)
