Narrative review

During this type of review, the search strategy is less important. This is a type of review students usually perform in their first year to learn how to summerize the information found in different articles. But you still need to find relevant articles, and hopefully not too many!

Expert*

I perform your searches. You only send me your PICO incl. 5 relevant articles.

Support includes:

  • Creating a search string together in the database of choice.
  • Translating it to two other databases.
  • Deduplication of the references, including a Word document with the search strings and results before and after deduplucatioin.

1. A temporary log in to your institute to access the database(s), or

2. During the online appointment we choose the relevant index and title/abstract terms. You copy and paste these in a Word document and send this document to me. I will translate it to the different syntaxes. You then copy and paste the search and send the results to me. I will deduplicate the references for you and then send the results including the Word document back to you.

3. I travel to the nearest institute which has access to the database(s). This adds at least 2 hours. Maybe more, if there are changes to the search string afterwards.
