Abstract

Systematic review and meta-analysis are powerful tools to provide an unbiased overview of all available literature addressing a specific
research question. The findings from systematic reviews and meta-analyses can inform policy and decision-making as well as explore
aspects of experimental design that contribute to heterogeneity in effect size. However, systematic reviews are resource-intensive
and due to the increasing rate of publication findings are likely to be out of date when published. To improve speed and quality,
methodological innovations and automation tools have emerged to support many steps in the production of evidence syntheses. This
workshop focusses on how to perform systematic reviews and tools specific to automating parts of the review process to reduce the
time required to complete systematic reviews. The methods of conducting a systematic review and meta-analysis will be covered. A
guide to using automation tools in reviews will be demonstrated, specifically; tools to refine and perform systematic searches, tools to
help screen citations for inclusion, find full texts and assess studies, extracting data, and meta-analysis.
