Summary note:
"Every piece of primary research ought to be preceded by a systematic review. The key advantage of a systematic review over the traditional narrative review is its ability to identify all the available evidence in a systematic and replicable manner. This informative guide describes the key steps to undertaking a systematic review and includes examples or how to design data extraction forms and research strategies."--BOOK JACKET.
