Northwell/ZSOM Scoping Review

Step by step guidance on conducting a scoping review.

What is a Scoping Review?

A Scoping Review is a type of evidence synthesis that aims to identify and map the evidence available on a particular topic.  Scoping reviews can analyze what types of evidence (research trials, case reports, etc.) exist and are available to answer a question, clarify key concepts on a question or topic, identify knowledge gaps in research, and more.

It’s important to know that a scoping review is:
•    A type of evidence synthesis that is held to rigorous standards, although it is not research.
•    Requires a team authors (it can’t be done alone).
•    Should involve the creation of and adherence to a protocol
•    Should follow methodological guidance on conducting scoping reviews found in the field
•    Should be reported in the literature according to established reporting guidelines
