Systematic Review Service

Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences (RBHS) Libraries offer a Systematic Review Service for Rutgers University students, staff and faculty. The 2011 Institute of Medicine study, Finding What Works in Health Care: Standards for Systematic Reviews recommends that the systematic review team should  “work with a librarian or other information specialist trained in performing systematic reviews to plan the search strategy.”  The health sciences librarians are happy to partner with you as you begin this considerable process.
