Systematic Synthesis of Qualitative Research

The current terrain of qualitative research is marked by a lack of consensus among its scholars on the value of literature reviews, the best manner in which to conduct and include other literature, and the amount of weight to be given to prior literature within the qualitative inquiry process. Given this lack of consensus about the utility of literature reviews, it is not surprising that there are divergent views on ways to search the literature and what to include when conducting systematic syntheses. Although there has been progress in developing methods to include qualitative research within evidence-based practice and systematic reviews, information retrieval for qualitative studies remains one of the least developed areas in systematic review methods.

Keywords:   literature reviews, information retrieval, systematic reviews, qualitative studies, qualitative synthesis
