Systematic reviews: A systematic review is an advanced research method summarising available research on a particular topic based on a research question. Researchers at UiO may request research support for systematic literature reviews at the University Library's Search Service for Systematic Reviews. Sites with highly qualified systematic reviews and meta-analyses which summarize and interpret results from different fields of research are to be found at the Campbell Collaboration and Cochrane Library sites. For systematic referencing, screening and selecting you may use the free web-tool Rayyan (Beta).You may also want to check opengrey for 'Grey Literature' which often include dissertations/theses, conference presentations, unpublished trial data; government publications (e.g. white papers, working papers); policies and procedures.

Sites displaying citation impact in terms of impact factor/journal impact factor, see Scopus/SciVal, Journal Citation Reports and SCImago (SJR). SJR is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for the number of citations received by a journal.
