    While the literature search is likely to be the main responsibility of information professionals involved in systematic review projects, there are other aspects of these projects that would benefit from our input.


    In this first of two webinars, the presenters will outline the processes and tools for developing a systematic review protocol and then translating the protocol into a publishable search methodology. The session will focus on best practices and standards (including PRISMA, Cochrane, and Institute of Medicine), communication with team members, and appropriate reporting of methodology.



    Presenters


    Mark MacEachern is an informationist in the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor.



    Whitney A. Townsend is an informationist and coordinator of the Health Sciences Executive Research Service in the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the Universityof Michigan–Ann Arbor.

    • Room 248, Ginsburg Health Sciences Library, Temple University
    In the highly competitive world of biomedical research, investigators and institutions must be able to demonstrate the significance and importance of their research to academia, the public, and the clinical community. 


    Librarians can play a vital role in partnering with individuals, groups, and institutions to determine how to track the impact of research. 


    This webinar will help librarians understand how to find and interpret a variety of traditional and new metrics for assessing research impact, including h-index, percentile ranking, and altmetrics.  The webinar will also provide a brief introduction to tools that can be used to create visualizations to help illustrate research metrics in visually striking and easy-to-understand formats.

    In this second of two webinars, the presenters will give an overview of resources and strategies for managing the data produced during the systematic review process.


    Special attention will be given to systematic review software, management of the citation results, the appraisal process, and strategies for overcoming complications and challenges that tend to arise when data are shared inter-departmentally or cross-institutionally.
