Additional Information

When used in tandem, systematic reviews and meta-analysis-- two distinct but highly compatible approaches to research synthesis-- form a powerful, scientific approach to analyzing previous studies. But to see their full potential, a social work researcher must be versed in the foundational processes underlying them. This pocket guide to Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis illuminates precisely that practical groundwork.

In clear, step-by-step terms, the authors explain how to format topics, locate and screen studies, extract and assess data, pool effect sizes, determine bias, and interpret the results, showing readers how to combine reviewing and meta-analysis correctly and effectively. Each chapter contains vivid social work examples and concludes with a concise summary and notes on further reading, while the book's glossary and handy checklists and sample search and data extraction forms maximize the boo'ks usefulness.

Highlighting the concepts necessary to understand, critique, and conduct research synthesis, this brief and highly readable introduction is a terrific resource for students and researchers alike.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I highly recommend this text for those interested in learning more about systematic reviews and meta-analysis. The book is clearly written and includes many helpful strategies and tools. Notably included are several appendices with sample instruments (e.g., data extraction) for use in conducting a review and meta-analysis. I read the book prior to attending a training provided by Dr. Littell. This text provides an excellent introduction to systematic review and meta-analysis.
This book is great; it's short and sweet, and even though I am not in social work, we're using it for my systematic reviews/meta-analysis class, and it's worked really well. A lot of the examples they give can be tailored. It basically goes through everything you'll need to do a really good review, including making better search terms, going through the different databases, extraction forms, assessing quality, etc. Great book!
This book really helped me with my systematic literature review, I feel some things could have been clearer or maybe explained differently - but all in all a big help !
