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.
