Systematic Review with Rachel Sumner
Literature reviews are the cornerstone of academic practice. We all read them and we all write them – so what makes systematic reviews different? The answer that I hope you’ll get from this session is: not very much! This session will take you through different types of reviews, focussing mainly on systematic reviews. I will go through the basic steps you need to take in preparing, conducting, and writing up a systematic review; along with practical hints and tips on resources that will help guide you.
Anyone who is either planning or carrying out a review is encouraged to bring their ideas along for open discussion after the seminar. We can discuss any type of review, on quantitative or qualitative data in any discipline – or at least try to!
Rachel's profile can be found here:
The seminars are open to everyone, staff and students alike, and we hope people from all Schools, Faculties and Institutes will participate. The aim is to provide an open and friendly environment where people from a range of research areas and interests can talk together about research. We hope this enable us all to learn more about different approaches in order to raise awareness of research for all. These have been developed by staff in the Research Priority Areas Sport, Exercise, Health and Wellbeing and Learning in Professional Contexts but for staff from any area to across to share common ground and perhaps inspire interdisciplinary collaboration.
Each month the seminar will look at a particular aspect of research from the practical perspective of the presenter. The seminars will take an accessible and practical approach and act as a ‘safe space’ to think through the challenges of the research process.
We welcome offers to present from anyone involved in research from undergraduate level onwards. Presentations can be around a current research project, maybe on an issue which is causing difficulty, a project in progress, or one that has been completed.
The seminars will be held on the last Wednesday of each month. The next three seminar themes have been lined up as follows:
28th September: Systematic Review; Rachel Sumner
26th October: Analysing Social Media; Matt Reed
30th November: Getting published; Susan Turner
Future seminars to be confirmed are: mobile methods, mosaic method.
