The DRM would like to invite you to join us at the PsySSA Congress for a Roundtable Discussion on the way that ‘Research Shapes the Psychologists’ Career Trajectory’ and a symposium focused on ‘Exploring the Value of Systematic Reviews in Psychology’. Systematic reviews are reviews of the literature, conducted with a pre-specified research question that uses explicit methods to identify, select and critically appraise relevant research that are contained within a pre-specified protocol. They aim is to synthesise the retrieved information by means of meta-analysis. Alternatively, a literature review is a descriptive study or analytical summary of existing material related to an area of study. Systematic reviews are frequently used for clinical evidence-based practice and decision-making and can be used for answering social psychological questions. Currently, there are 14 types of reviews documented, and this symposium aims to provide case study examples of reviews and systematic reviews in psychology. The symposium will introduce the types of reviews and methods, provide case study examples from psychology students and researchers, and conclude with a discussion on the value and place of systematic reviews in psychology.
