From Protocol To Publication:

Maximizing the Return on Your Systematic Review Investment

Tuesday, January 29  1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m. central time

Are your hours of search time translating into published systematic
reviews. . . or into projects that disappear in the void? Are you getting
more systematic review requests than you can handle? Are you planning to
start a systematic review service and want to plan for success?

An Informationist, a Project Manager, and a Methodologist/Clinician very
experienced with systematic reviews share their strategies for identifying
promising projects, avoiding problems before they scuttle a project, and
working with review teams to conduct successful--and published!--systematic


Health Sciences Librarians at academic and research institutions and
hospitals with knowledge of systematic reviews.
