What is a literature search?
A literature search is a detailed, comprehensive, and systematic search of the published and unpublished literature about specific topics or conditions.
The search yields a set of results on the topic in question – usually a list of journal articles and reports.
Our literature searches typically take 1-2 weeks, and deadlines may need to be negotiated during periods of high demand. In some circumstances we may be able to offer a quicker turnaround. Please contact us directly to discuss.
This service is not available to students, although we can support you to undertake a literature search yourself.
What can it be used for?
- Patient care
- Quality or continuous improvement projects
- Policies, procedures, guidelines or business cases
- Patient information resources
- Research or writing for publication
