Systematic reviews of reviews are useful for integrating and synthesizing the literature on a topic for which a wealth of research, and specifically research syntheses, exists. This talk will cover the why and how of the systematic review of reviews methodology, including the steps involved in conducting a systematic review of reviews as well as the tasks and challenges that arise at each step. The talk will conclude with an example systematic review of reviews.
