Consultation with a subject librarian

Systematic review search consultations are available to Concordia students, faculty and staff, via the subject librarian assigned to their discipline.

During a systematic review consultation, you can expect:

  • Assistance with structuring a search strategy
  • Guidance on specialized resources you might consider searching
  • Assistance with search techniques specific to resources Concordia has access to

During a systematic review consultation, the librarian will not be responsible for:

  • Developing and documenting a comprehensive reproducible search strategy
  • Translating search strategies for additional database platforms
  • Running searches
  • Downloading the results to citation management software
  • De-duplicating the results
  • Searching grey literature resources

More in-depth assistance and collaboration may be available to Concordia faculty but is at the discretion of the librarian. In cases where librarians agree to be a member of a systematic review team, roles and deliverables should be discussed and agreed upon by both the review team’s principal investigator and the librarian.
