Session Abstract

Experienced information specialists designing searches for systematic reviews will be taught a new method using which exhaustive search strategies can be created much faster maintaining high sensitivity and acceptable precision. Participants will learn a coding structure that helps them create complicated search strategies more easily, optimization methods that help identify extra words on any topic, and methods to semi-automatically translate search strategies between databases and interfaces using macros in MS Word. After demonstrations and exercises with a shared example research question, participants will work in their own database of choice on their own (or their customer's) research question(s). An experienced information specialist will guide them individually through the process. After the workshop the participants will be able to create complex searches that are checked for completeness and have been translated in different databases much faster than with traditional methods
