A systematic literature review is a formal, structured research study that seeks to find, assess, and analyze studies on a specific question. Systematic reviews follow a defined search plan where the criteria is clearly stated before the review is conducted. It is a comprehensive, transparent search that can be replicated and reproduced by other researchers. Systematic reviews involve planning a well thought out search strategy with a specific focus or question. The review identifies the type of information searched, critiqued and reported within known timeframes.
