Searching Systematically

The data in a systematic review are articles.  You find your data through a very thorough, comprehensive, systematic search.

For a systematic review, you need to use:

  • keywords
  • subject headings
  • boolean operators 
    • OR to combine synonyms
    • AND to combine concepts 

Systematic searching is not easy.  It is time consuming and frustrating.

Please remember to contact Alix (ahadyen@ucalgary.ca) for help searching and collecting your data.

The University of Toronto Library has created an excellent series of short videos on how to search CINAHL.

 

The University of Toronto Library has created an excellent series of short videos on how to search Medline.

You search PsycINFO the same way.
