Systematic Reviews

Instruction Librarians Lindsay Davis and Elizabeth McMunn-Tetangco have created an online guide with resources for conducting systematic reviews in public health. The guide, which was developed for a workshop for students in Dr. Nancy Burke's PSY 298 Professional Seminar, is a resource that will be continuously updated.

Watch the video below from the University College, University of Maine System Off-Campus Library Services to learn about systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

Sign up for a Free ORCID ID

"In a world where tens of thousands of scholars may share the same name, a name alone is not enough to authoritatively connect scholars to their work. Instead, scholars need a unique numerical ORCID identifier to ensure that they are authoritatively and consistently linked to their scholarly work, accomplishments and awards. In addition, the many grant funders and more than 1,000 journals that have integrated ORCID identifiers into their submission and publication systems now require ORCID identifiers of applicants and authors" (UC Merced Library, 2016).
