Title: An Introduction to Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Date and Time: May 26, 11:00 a.m.
Content: Peer-reviewed journals have been publishing academic articles since the 1600s. Consequently, there is an ever-increasing body of literature in many areas that challenge practitioners, researchers, and other consumers of research studies. Due to variation in methodology, the quality of methods employed in studies, sampling differences, and other factors, study findings can be different, even contradictory to each other. Therefore, systematic review and meta-analysis studies are crucial in reviewing the literature in a replicable way and providing an overall snapshot of the extant literature. In this brief seminar, participants will be introduced to systematic review and meta-analysis. Specifically, the position of systematic review and meta-analysis in evidence-based research will be discussed, the steps of the systematic review will be outlined, various systematic review types for social and educational sciences will be presented, and the concept of meta-analysis will be introduced.
