Why do we do systematic reviews, part 1 version 2

At the start of the ‘Why do we do systematic reviews?’ series I started with a poll embedded in the first article. It acted as a springboard for the subsequent articles.  Over the course of writing the series I felt that the questions would have benefitted from greater clarity.  So, I want to re-run the survey, with clearer questions, and throw it open to a wider group of respondents (the registered users of the Trip Database).  Once the survey has been finished I intend to write a final summary article for the ‘Why do we do systematic reviews?’ series.

So, the new poll is below.  You can select more than one answer, click on all you feel are appropriate.  If you can think of any alternate reasons please leave a comment below the poll.

One thought on “Why do we do systematic reviews, part 1 version 2

  1. Alternate reason: to reduce avoidable waste in research by identifying, rewarding and promoting good conduct and reporting of primary research. Cochrane reviewers already systematically do this with the mandatory risk of bias tool, but this valuable information is not used explicitly outside the confines of the review.
