SYSTEMATIC REVIEW AND ITS STRUCTURE

systematic review  systematic review is a well designed literary text that basically answers a focused research problem with predefined exclusion and inclusion criteria. In research field, systematic review is a term that refers to a specific process and holds specific meaning. It is used as a standard writing style for legitimate academic review articles of high quality, following a set of guidelines.

In the research field, quantitative, qualitative and meta-analysis are three types of research. Where in quantitative research the result of the research paper are measured based on calculations and numbers. However, the qualitative research is based on observations and the meta-analysis result is based on review of many studies. These same set of rules is followed for systematic reviews. Comprehensively, this is a framework or a superstructure. This structure should be well known to the manuscript writers who are in the field of academic writing and aim at publishing manuscript.

The identification of the real research problem is the first step involved while drafting a systematic review. For this a valid literature is needed dealing with that subject area. The literature review should not be too old, and needs to be within 10 years of the current research. While devising a suitable research question the PICO framework is followed by researcher i.e. Problem, Intervention, Comparison and Outcomes. In systematic review, the exclusion and inclusion criteria follows few parameters like population, type of intervention, study design, grouping, etc. The real work of spotting out the inclusive studies is by using database like online searches, online libraries, etc. Then the retrieved information is inserted into one reference manager like that of endnote. Lastly, the output is submitted with the methodology part, which also contains the strategies, criteria of selection and meta-analysis, if required. In this section, future recommendations can be cited. While publishing manuscript it needs to be kept in mind that systematic review involves a structured methodology section, where methods of various researches are used and the outcome is predicted in a lucid manner, to strike out any study bias.

Finally, we have tried to conclude the entire procedure of systematic review in an uncomplicated manner and describe the quality elements involved in every step of writing the review.
