Systematic reviews are comprehensive reviews of quantitative research literature conducted according to explicit guidelines established in advance. The strengths of systematic reviews as sources of evidence for practice are the exhaustive nature of the literature search, the objective criteria for determining which research will be included, and the methods used to synthesize the findings from each study into comprehensive conclusions. Guidelines for appraising systematic reviews focus on these strengths and whether the results of the systematic review can be applied to practice.
