Evidence Synthesis in the Social Sciences

This guide will give you an overview of evidence synthesis methodology and discuss relevant resources and tools.

Evidence synthesis steps

The exact order, number, and type of the steps you take in your research process, and what is involved in each step, will vary depending on the research protocol you develop in conjunction with your research partners. In this guide we have broken out the most common steps and provide resources for further guidance within each section in the hope that we can help you determine your own evidence synthesis steps.

Other overviews of evidence synthesis steps

Here are a few other libraries' libguides, which each break out the steps in the evidence synthesis methodology in slightly different ways. They also include different resources, so if you get through this guide and you'd like further guidance, they might be a good place to start.
