Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2024

Time: 1:00 PM To 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Systematic reviews must adhere to a strict scientific design based on explicit, pre-specified and reproducible methods in order to provide reliable, unbiased evidence.

*Ensure that journal publisher requirements for systematic reviews are met.
