BENEFITS OF A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW

  • Desk research (i.e. field research is not required).
  • Highly publishable as a research in its own right.
  • Highly citable once published.
  • Serves as a “super literature review” for future articles.
  • Mastery of the literature and subject area (long-term benefits).
  • Familiarity with scholars in the field of study.
  • Identification of knowledge gaps, hence justification of future research areas.
  • Results in a database of authors, files, references for future works.
  • Lead to future trend and meta-analyses.
  • Identify avenues for the publication of your research.
