QUB Subject Librarians can show you how to:

  • Structure searches using AND/OR
  • Select appropriate databases
  • Search selected databases
  • Save and re-run searches
  • Export database results
  • Store and deduplicate results using EndNote
  • Identify grey literature (if required)

Subject Librarians are unable to:

  • Check review protocols
  • Peer review, or approve, search strategies       
  • Create search strategies from scratch
  • Search databases or grey literature sources
  • Deduplicate results
  • Screen results
  • Demonstrate systematic review tools (e.g. Covidence, Rayyan)
  • Create PRISMA flowcharts or similar documentation

For more information, please see the Library’s Systematic Reviews Subject Guide, or contact your Subject Librarian.
