Lund, H. & Christensen, R. (2016). "a systematic review is a structured and preplanned synthesis of original studies that consists of predefined research questions, inclusion criteria, search methods, selection procedures, quality assessment, data extraction, and data analysis. No original research study should be deliberately excluded without explanation, and the results from each study should justify the conclusion" Lund, H., Juhl, C. & Christensen, R. (2016). Systematic reviews and research waste. The Lancet, 387(10014), 123-124. https://doi.org/10.1016/s0140-6736(15)01354-9
