KTDRR Products Overview
The Center on KTDRR develops and makes available on its website a number of products for use by researchers and interested parties. These include a monograph, informational briefs, e-newsletters, archives of training and technical assistance activities such as workshops and webcasts, and an annual KT casebook.
- New Methods and Technologies for Keeping Systematic Reviews Up to Date outlines innovations in bibliographic data searching that may be helpful in identifying studies for systematic reviews. James Thomas, deputy director of the Evidence for Policy and Practice Information and Co-ordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre) at University College London, begins with an overview of methods currently used to search existing bibliographic databases. Next, he examines changes in the collection of bibliographic databases and recent advances in methods for retrieval of information, including a study using Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG) and OpenAlex as single-source databases. Finally, he illustrates the potential these new developments hold for the systematic review process with a case study of the EPPI-Centre’s living systematic map of COVID 19 research.
KT Update is a quarterly e-newsletter from the KTDRR to inform the research community of new resources, upcoming webcasts, workshop opportunities, and other relevant information.
The KTDRR staff develops a KT Casebook to showcase NIDILRR grantees’ KT activities. The purposes of the casebook are to share examples of successful and less successful KT strategies, demonstrate change created through KT activities, identifying factors that affect KT success, and demonstrate outcomes and impact of KT activities.
The AQASR document and checklist was developed to help busy clinicians, administrators, and researchers to ask critical questions that help to reveal the strengths and weaknesses of a systematic review, in general, and as relevant to their particular clinical question or other practical concerns.
