We have answers to your questions
Are there specific frameworks to keep in mind?
Research synthesis methods can vary depending on the field of study, the nature of the research question, and the available data. Approaches like systematic reviews, meta-analyses, narrative syntheses, and qualitative syntheses each have their own nuances and techniques. The phases outlined above provide a general framework for conducting research synthesis, but the specific steps may be adapted to fit the method you choose to employ.
What are the phases of research synthesis?
Research synthesis has multiple phases: Data Extraction: Extract relevant information from each selected study, such as study design, sample size, methodology, findings, and any other relevant data. Organize and catalog the extracted data to facilitate further analysis. Data Analysis: Depending on the nature of the studies and your research questions, you may perform various types of analyses, such as statistical analysis, content analysis, thematic analysis, or meta-analysis (if applicable). Identify patterns, trends, and common themes across the studies. Synthesize the findings of the individual studies to draw broader conclusions or insights. Interpretation and Synthesis: Analyze the synthesized findings to answer your research question or address your research objective. Identify areas of consensus, divergence, or gaps in the literature. Draw conclusions and make recommendations based on the aggregated evidence. Reporting and Communication: Prepare a comprehensive synthesis report that includes the research question, methodology, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. Clearly communicate the synthesis process and results to your intended audience, whether it's a research community, policymakers, practitioners, or the general public. Review and Validation: Have your synthesis reviewed by peers, experts, or colleagues to ensure the accuracy, validity, and reliability of your approach and findings.
