A systematic review answers a defined research question by collecting and
summarising all empirical evidence that fits pre-specified eligibility
criteria.



A meta-analysis is the use of statistical methods to summarise the results
of these studies.

Meta-analysis

From Wikipedia



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meta-analysis



.



In statistics, meta-analysis comprises statistical methods for contrasting
and combining results from different studies in the hope of identifying
patterns among study results, sources of disagreement among those results,
or other interesting relationships that may come to light in the context
of multiple studies.[1] Meta-analysis can be thought of as "conducting
research about previous research." In its simplest form, meta-analysis is
done by identifying a common statistical measure that is shared between
studies, such as effect size or p-value, and calculating a weighted
average of that common measure. This weighting is usually related to the
sample sizes of the individual studies, although it can also include other
factors, such as study quality.



.



The motivation of a meta-analysis is to aggregate information in order to
achieve a higher statistical power for the measure of interest, as opposed
to a less precise measure derived from a single study. In performing a
meta-analysis, an investigator must make choices many of which can affect
its results, including deciding how to search for studies, selecting
studies based on a set of objective criteria, dealing with incomplete
data, analyzing the data, and accounting for or choosing not to account
for publication bias. [2]



.



Meta-analyses are often, but not always, important components of a
systematic review procedure. For instance, a meta-analysis may be
conducted on several clinical trials of a medical treatment, in an effort
to obtain a better understanding of how well the treatment works. Here it
is convenient to follow the terminology used by the Cochrane
Collaboration,[3] and use "meta-analysis" to refer to statistical methods
of combining evidence, leaving other aspects of 'research synthesis' or
'evidence synthesis', such as combining information from qualitative
studies, for the more general context of systematic reviews.

Systematic Review Methods



The Community Guide



http://www.thecommunityguide.org/about/methods.html



What is a systematic review?

A systematic review is a review of scientific studies on a specific topic.
It uses a formal process to:



Identify all relevant studies

Assess their quality

Summarize the evidence

Why do a systematic review?

Systematic reviews help make sense of large bodies of scientific
literature by applying the scientific process to:



Reduce bias in how conclusions are reached

Improve the power and precision of results

Summarize evidence about the effectiveness of particular approaches for
addressing a public health problem

Analyze generalizability of findings

Identify knowledge gaps and need for additional research
