About this item

Garrard presents this guide to literature review in the health sciences using the matrix method. This fifth edition offers new visual aids, a digital appendix, and is updated with new standards for research synthesis including PRISMA. The book follows the workflow of a case study, Caroline, using the matrix method to write a review for her master's thesis. The first of three parts defines good practice for research reviews by introducing the matrix method, the PRISMA flowchart, guidelines for specific types of research reviews, and source evaluation. Part II then describes the matrix method step-by-step, including planning the literature search, selecting and organizing sources for a particular project, abstracting using the matrix, and synthesizing using the matrix and PRISMA workflow. The final section offers three chapters on applications: creating a library of sources used in past projects, indexing the library to keep information dynamically accessible for future projects, and using the matrix method in formulating research projects or informing clinical practice.
