Assistance with literature searches

UMCG-employees and (RUG) students are welcome to make an appointment about search strategy for a systematic review or a CAT.

We offer individual support for:

  • Systematic Reviews (search strategy development, optimalisation)
  • PICO-CAT (search strategy)
  • finding out why some articles are not retrieved with your search strategy
  • help to translate a search strategy to other databases
  • advice to update an older search strategy
  • find answers for questions about citation management/ deduplication​/ checklists for study quality/ reporting guidelines/ search filters
