  • Identify existing systematic reviews on a topic
  • Recommend appropriate databases
  • Review existing search strategies
  • Develop search strategies for each database
  • Execute searches across multiple databases
  • Deduplicate and provide citations, e.g. using EndNote
  • Provide assistance and advise with screening records, e.g. using Covidence
  • Assist with locating full-text articles
  • Provide a narrative of the search methodology, including PRISMA flow charts
  • Contribute to the manuscript/report as a co-author
