Cornell University Library offers a systematic review service to research staff, graduate students and faculty in all departments at Cornell's Ithaca campus. To initiate a consultation about your systematic review, fill out the form below and visit our resource guide to learn more.
We are committed to guiding and collaborating with investigators on the following tasks:
- Choosing the best review methodology to fit your timeline, question scope and discipline
- Identifying relevant databases for searching the scholarly literature, including the gray literature
- Designing and implementing complex, database-specific search strategies
- Using citation management software for gathering studies
- Using article screening and selection tools like Covidence
- Guidance on the research synthesis process and protocol development
- Finding and evaluating systematic reviews that have already been published
Librarians who write the search methodology section of the review should be included as a co-author. Librarians who collaborate on search strategy formation and/or citation management should be acknowledged in the final publication.
From December 2017 through November 2018, Cornell University Library is piloting an unlimited license to Covidence for members of the Cornell community located on the main campus in Ithaca, NY. Sign up for access to Covidence here and visit our resource guide for more information.
Librarians are available to provide in-class instruction on systematic review methodology. To request an instruction session or workshop, or if you have any other questions about this service, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a researcher at Weill Cornell Medical College, please submit a request on the Weill Cornell Systematic Review Service Page.
