The first step in your systematic review is to start with your research question, framework or topic. Once you've formulated your research question you can start searching for examples of systematic literature reviews.
Step two: find examples
Start searching for examples of systematic literature reviews (SLRs) that are on, or as close to, your topic as possible.
Systematic literature reviews often publish the search strategy and the Library databases they used. This can help you decide which databases to use and help you formulate your search.
Step three: conduct a search
Select and search Library databases relevant to your topic. It will take some time to develop a good search strategy. Once you find a search strategy that works for you, run the same search in each of the databases you have selected for your review.
Record the number of results (citations) from each search. Remove the duplicates, then record the number of remaining citations from each database.
Systematic reviews that have been published will record their results and how they found their results in various ways.
Examples of frameworks that are used to formulate a research question are the PICO or SPIDER frameworks. An example of a workflow is the PRISMA flowchart or diagram to document how you have conducted your search and recorded your results.
