How to write systematic quantitative literature reviews
Prof. Catherine Pickering and Dr. William Bennett gave a presentation at the 2015 Environmental Futures Research Institute retreat talking about PhDs by published and unpublished papers.
In their presentation they mentioned the concept of a 'Systematic quantitative literature review'. I was intrigued, so looked into it more.
They've developed this great webpage contains a suite of fantastic resources with guidance on how to plan for and write systematic quantitative literature reviews - including videos, publications about the technique, example databases, and example publications using the technique.
Well worth a look!
