Systematic Reviews Workshop 2: Developing Your Data Collection Strategy (Online) In-Person
This virtual workshop will cover the key concepts/skills needed to create a data collection strategy for your review project. Creating a comprehensive search strategy that is designed to capture as many relevant studies as possible and is validated using a test set, is similar to designing your data collection method in an experimental study. It requires careful planning as well as knowledge of how databases work. This is a hands-on Zoom session where attendees will work on activities, in order to engage with the content and learn the related skills.
Presenters: University of Victoria librarian Dr Zahra Premji & University of Calgary librarian Dr Alix Hayden
Topics to be covered:
- Elements of a comprehensive search
- Designing and building a comprehensive search in one database
- Saving searches
- Validating searches using a test set
- Good data management practices
This is the second workshop of a three-part series of workshops on systematic reviews/knowledge synthesis. You are not required to take all three workshops in the series; however the information in the series is scaffolded, so each workshop builds on knowledge learned in the previous workshop.
The zoom link will be sent out via email the day before the workshop. Note: This session will not be recorded.
*This workshop series is offered jointly by UVic & UCalgary libraries*
