Searching is a critical part of conducting the systematic review. Errors in the search process may result in a biased or incomplete evidence base.
Systematic review searches need to maximise recall and effectively deal with many potentially biasing factors. (Source: McGown, 2005, p.75)
Searching is not an exact science. You may need to try quite a few different search terms in multiple databases before you find a search strategy that can be replicated across your selected databases.
Consult the below resources for help with searching. For further support contact the Library.
Higher Degree Research students and staff can book a one-hour consultation with a Librarian to be held in person, by phone, or online video conference.
