Scoping reviews generally aim to examine research activity, often to identify research gaps in the existing literature. These reviews, which are becoming more popular, may benefit from contributions of a medical librarian. This session will provide detail about scoping reviews, including examples of topics/questions best served by this type of review. Standards and criteria to consider with planning a scoping review will be shared. Additional topics will include determining where to search, identifying search terms, reporting search strategies, and managing references.
Class will be taught via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Registrants will be emailed the Zoom link 30 minutes before the class time.
