IT was an interesting course and the lecturer gave a comprehensive overview of the whole process with hacking tips

It would be better if we get some videos on how to search in different databases. As there are different functions in different databases like Scopus, Google Scholar, PubMed, etc. have different options for finding. Moreover, we want to know how to assemble in one excel sheet all findings from different sources.

As an introduction this course is enough. Sections 6 on presenting and summarizing can be elaborated further.

This course has elevated my knowledge about systematic review and meta-analysis, It has prompted me to dig deeper and to unleash more potential related to this topic. I can't wait to learn more courses related to research methodology from you.

I am still going through the course. Lecture 8 was extremely mechanical and appeared like a compilation done for an MBA course. Lecture 9 (Types of Reviews) is totally out of place. We are studying Systematic Reviews, which is a specific topic. Lecture 9 should have been part of a Lecture that explains "Literature Review" to novices.

The course started with much promise, but it ultimately did not deliver. The first 30 to 45 minutes of the 2 hr course is repetitive--SRs are good, NRs are bad, and MAs are not the same as SRs. All of the examples are health oriented, but the author claims to be a social scientist at the end. To be fair, some of the resources are great. I was unimpressed with plug to publish with the author. That did not seem like the right thing to do. I am leaving disappointed.

The information given so far has helped me to make connections between several tasks I'm doing in my current role

Breve e intenso corso sulla SLR. Tocca tutti gli argomenti senza lasciare nulla di inesplorato. Fornisce molti materiali utili nelle sezioni delle risorse e il docente è davvero disponibile. Necessario per chi fa ricerca accademica e consiglio sia a chi è digiuno da studi sistematici sia chi ne conosce un po' .

It was close. I wish you could include the PRISMA guidelines in the course and also share a more detailed narrative on the search strategy section.

I liked the end sections more especially the 5th and 6th section. In the rest 4 sections, I was looking out for more explanations with examples and not exactly slide reading. Though I must appreciate that the resources provided are very good and add good value to the course. Expected a bit more with simplified example oriented teaching.

Excellent course. Lots of useful references. Will definitely recommend this course to all my students.

The course is so exciting because it gives a learner clear understanding of how to formulate research strategy, research question and much more. It is a course that you must take if you want to do a professional systematic literature review

The course is very important and useful for me to explore the techniques of systematic literature review in the field of Blended Education.

This course was an eye opener for me. Publishing in Impact Factor Journal is a kind of phobia for researchers at the beginning. But this course proved a confidence builder. Thanks to Dr. Shakil Ahmad. You are a great person and teachers. I pay salute to you.
