Dissertations and Theses: Some Tools to Support Your Progress

Systematic Literature Reviews--

Systematic literature reviews are both a summary of what's known and often contain recommendations for practice, which is why they are more common in applied sciences, like medicine or nursing. Often, they may say what is likely to work well, what's not supported sufficiently to be recommended, and what practices are not recommended! Some include an economic evaluation, as what may work best in the lab may not be affordable in the field.
