PROSPERO, by the National Institute for Health Research in York, UK, is an international database of prospectively registered systematic reviews in health and social care, welfare, public health, education, crime, justice, and international development, where there is a health related outcome.PROSPERO aims to provide a comprehensive listing of systematic reviews registered at inception to help avoid duplication and reduce opportunity for reporting bias by enabling comparison of the completed review with what was planned in the protocol.
The CDSR includes all Cochrane Reviews (and protocols) prepared by Cochrane Review Groups. Each Cochrane Review is a systematic review that has been prepared and supervised by a Cochrane Review Group (editorial team). It attempts to identify, appraise and synthesize all the empirical evidence that meets pre-specified eligibility criteria to answer a specific research question on any topic relevant to health care, including health services.
Hosted by Elsevier Researcher Academy and presented by Naomi Lee, and Paul Whaley, this webinar will help you learn key strategies for conducting a systematic review, getting it published, and how researchers from multiple disciplines – from data science to predictive toxicology – can collaborate in contributing to the development of evidence synthesis methods. You’ll come away with a clearer understanding of the tools available, how to save time, and the most common pitfalls to avoid.
