Systematic Review and Its Importance

MIRON KUMAR BHOWMIK

Traditional form of ‘literature review’ normally reports the findings part of other researches related to one’s own research questions, not necessarily it goes for appraising critically methods used in conducting these researches. There might be numerous number of research studies in a specific research area, not necessarily all were conducted following appropriate methodology. But more importantly, are all these findings reported valid, reliable and useful? Why is it important to be findings reliable? How can policy makers, professionals and practitioners identify sound research evidences for policy formulation and outlining strategies? Here it comes the idea of ‘systematic review’, started first back in 1975 in the field of healthcare, but later it has now been being used in other areas including education, social care, crime and justice, employment etc. A ‘systematic review’ is mainly a scientific, methodological, rigorous review of existing literature which actually examines the results of other researches whether the evidences are valid, reliable and useful. It is a kind of research aiming to answer a particular research question by looking at as much as possible relevant researches that also aimed at answering same type of research question. It then picks up only reliable evidences from those researches following a standard set of processes. The ‘systematic review’ uses explicit, rigorous and transparent methods in doing so. The very procedures of ‘systematic review’ make it accountable, replicable and updateable. It also makes sure the involvement of the users of that particular research outputs in order to make it very relevant and useful. Then finally, ‘systematic review’ synthesizes those varied and reliable evidences available for all who will need to use it. Traditionally ‘systematic review’ was employed to assess the researches having mainly experimental/interventional design but now the use of ‘systematic review’ for assessing researches of other designs has been increased.
