Four key competencies needed to begin a systematic review are introduced. These skills focus on how to 1) pose a searchable question and prepare a review protocol, 2) develop a comprehensive list of search keywords that includes concepts for the population, problem, and research methods, 3) identify strategies for locating relevant research and 4) create inclusion and exclusion criteria to guide the search for relevant research. The concept of transparency (i.e., the need to document all activities and decisions that guide the search process) is emphasized throughout the chapter.

Keywords:   transparency, searchable questions, keywords, inclusion criteria, exclusion criteria, mapping reviews, electronic databases, publication bias, grey literature
