Literature review and systematic review

On Tuesday 11 April, NHL Stenden Research Services is organising Research Day 2023.

The varied programme of Research Day 2023 includes workshops on all topics of importance within research and a real escape room.

During Research Day 2023, our information specialists Sonja de Haan and Nynke Janna Borsje will give a workshop on literature review support and our information specialist Olga van Dijk will give a workshop on systematic review.

Doing literature searches and systematic reviews are very important for scientific research. 
A literature review ensures that you are aware of previous research and findings in your field, while a systematic review is a structured and systematic method of collecting and analysing all available scientific literature on a specific topic in order to arrive at an overview of the current state of affairs and any gaps in the research field.

NHL Stenden Research Services offers support in these important research methods.

Not signed up for Research Day 2023, but have questions about literature review or systematic review? Then drop by the NHL Stenden Library and ask for our information specialists or email your question to
