Trying to get that high-impact publication? Tired of inefficient literature searches? Want the introduction of your thesis to be something more? Why not perform a systematic review?

Systematic reviews are literature overviews that attempt to answer clearly defined questions, with explicit methods to identify, select, critically appraise, analyze and report data. Cochrane is a non-profit organization that provides guidance and support to researchers interested in performing a systematic review (www.cochrane.org). The Cochrane methodology is considered the gold standard in systematic review development.

This 3-day course will teach you all about the different steps to take to perform a high-quality, methodologically sound and reliable literature overview, from designing a search strategy to performing meta-analyses. The course, taught by experienced Cochrane authors, is filled with workshops and exercises, thus preparing you to get started immediately on your own systematic review. A detailed program is available here

This workshop is organised by the doctoral schools of the five Flemish Universities.
