Reminder – Invitation to systematic searchers to participate in a survey
*Attention all librarians or information specialists who carry out
systematic searches for systematic reviews or similar evidence summaries
(e.g. Health Technology Assessments etc.)!*
Our thanks to those who have already completed this survey. If you have not
yet had a chance to do so, we invite you to complete a survey regarding
citation practice patterns of systematic searchers who use search filters
or reuse search strategies.
As you know, creating a systematic and comprehensive search of a topic
takes time, expertise and effort. A common way to aid the process or refine
your results is to use either methodological search filters or reuse
topical search strings created by others.
We are exploring how often you and other expert searchers acknowledge the
source of the reused search string/filter or cite the original article in
which those filters or topical searches were published.
This international and anonymous survey should take about 10 minutes or
less to complete. Please click here for more information and to access the
We would greatly appreciate your participation by December 31, 2015.
