Synthesis Review Toolkit Introduction: Synthesis Review Toolkit

Synthesis Review Toolkit

Researchers, graduate students, and healthcare professionals at some stage of knowledge inquiry may need to conduct a synthesis review. Whether it is a systematic review, realist review or other review type, embarking upon a synthesis review is no walk in the park - it is a marathon.

Synthesis reviews follow a predetermined, yet flexible, design and are an iterative process. To guide you on your journey, there are seven guides, each of which describes the key stages common to most synthesis reviews. While all stages are included, there is more detailed information on Stages 1 and 2.
