Knowledge Synthesis & Systematic Reviews

KS Support at the NJM Library

Knowledge synthesis projects - such as systematic reviews and scoping reviews - are major undertakings that take teams of researchers with specialized skills and expertise several months, or even years, to complete. They are not an appropriate choice of methodology for an individual or for groups that are short on time.

Support for knowledge synthesis (KS) projects at the NJM focuses on training and consultation.

Rady Faculty of Health Sciences Students

What we can do for you:

  • We offer introductory workshops about knowledge synthesis methods, both in person and online
  • We provide information and links to resources on the KS page
  • We provide feedback on your project protocol and literature search strategy

Book a consultation or send an e-mail to ask questions and receive guidance from one of our librarians.  

Rady Faculty of Health Sciences Faculty

In addition to the support offered to students above, RFHS faculty may choose to invite a librarian from the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library to join their research team. NJM librarians choose what research endeavors they undertake based on their interests and availability. 

KS Support for University of Manitoba Research Teams

If all members of the research team are affiliated with the University of Manitoba, library staff may be able to assist you in locating and uploading of full-text articles into Covidence projects, dependant on staff availability. Contact to see if your project qualifies or if you have other questions.
