What is a systematic literature review?

A systematic literature review (SLR) is a type of literature review that summarizes all available research about a subject or a research question.

The literature search is the data collection of the systematic literature review method. This type of literature search can be very time consuming.

When searching for literature in a SLR you do comprehensive searches in multiple databases and information sources. The goal is to systematically go through all the literature related to a subject, or a specific research question, in order to collect all relevant literature.
