Three session moderators who have been or are currently involved in setting up a systematic review service, Hannah Ewald, Heidrun Janka and Volker Braun, will share their experiences in a short presentation (~10 minutes). The presentation will set the stage for a plenary discussion. Colleagues of all levels of experience can share their knowledge, give helpful insights in their work, engage in the discussion, or raise questions and issues relevant to different settings. Session content will include helpful information, obstacles on the way and how they were overcome, dos and don’ts, tips and tricks, potential collaborators, fee-based yes/no – cost scheme, billing modalities, acknowledgement versus co-authorship.
Learning outcomes : Evaluating criteria for a successful systematic review service. Analyzing if and how a systematic review service is a valid option for one’s own setting. Applying input from roundtable discussion into practice. Creating a network of peers involved in systematic review services.
Type of interactivity : The fishbowl is an opportunity for participants to get together in an informal setting to examine issues around a specific topic. Chairs will be assembled circularly – this is the “fishbowl”. After introduction of the topic by the moderators, any member of the audience can, at any time, occupy an empty chair at the center of the fishbowl and join the conversation, ask questions or share experience. To give everyone the opportunity to speak, speakers within the fishbowl should leave whenever someone new joins the fishbowl.
Level : Introductory
Target audience : Information specialists who know what systematic reviews are, who are familiar with the different steps, and who offer services around systematic reviewing.
Preparation for the session : No
