Terrible pun – apologies – we are all very tired after an intensive session on M152PY Introducing Research Informed Practice in Health Psychology.
Today we looked at systematic review papers, searching and downloading some examples from the online database scopus.com (other databases are available).
We were identifying the key features of systematic review papers to get students started on their own systematic review assignment. Prisma flow diagrams and tabulated findings were our main focus. Looking at published examples of systematic reviews will really help students understand what a systematic review looks like and (hopefully) help them make a start on their own.
We also looked very briefly at RefWorks – there are some great videos on YouTube that aim to get new users started in 20 minutes.
So quite a busy and packed session but lots of new skills being acquired. Looking forward to reading the finished reviews in December.
