Researchers ask, librarians deliver: Meeting the needs of scholars through a suite of systematic review services for every subject discipline
MetadataShow full item record
Scholarly communities are producing more articles every year due to the implementation of speedy review processes and innovative technologies for research dissemination. To quickly inform best practices and policies, systematic reviews started flourishing beyond the health and medical sciences. Researchers from other subject disciplines including education, engineering, agricultural, library, humanities and social sciences, explore ways to compile, analyze and evaluate in a systematic way the best evidence to inform future practices. To address this growing need, University of Maryland Libraries launched a pilot program in two phases under the Research Commons Unit to introduce researchers to the process of conducting systematic and scoping reviews. The primary focus of this presentation will include the development of workshop series designed based on the registrants’ feedback. Future plans for assessment and evaluation will be shared as well.
