The PRISMA Flow Diagram - Introduction Online
**Please note: Sessions are subject to change if unforeseen circumstances arise. Please register for the session to ensure you receive updates via email.**
This 30-minute workshop + Q&A will cover what the PRISMA Flow Diagram is, where you can find it, and how to use it in your work.
Although PRISMA was designed specifically for use with systematic reviews it can also be a useful tool for postgraduates conducting searches to support their thesis, and even final year undergraduates doing their dissertation or final year project. In fact, it can be useful for documenting any kind of systematic search process.
No prior knowledge or use of PRISMA is required for this session. Although information for this session will be taken from the results of database searches, no searching instruction will be covered in this session. (Please look at the EYL events calendar for details of specific, database centric searching sessions.)
You attend the session online via Blackboard Collaborate. You don't need to download anything as it all takes place in your browser, but if you have connection problems then the first thing to do would be to try an alternate browser although Chrome / Firefox are usually the most stable.
You will need to set up your device's audio / video before you get started so make sure you have a microphone & speakers / headphones to interact. (Although if you wish you can use the built-in chat feature instead and your questions will be answered towards the end of the session.)
The session will be recorded and the link sent out to everyone who has registered.
Please ensure that you put your university email address in correctly - it should end @unimail.derby.ac.uk
Please note that we do not issue certificates of attendance for these workshops.
