Glossary - systematic literature review

Indexsystematic literature review

This is a particular form of secondary study and aims to provide an objective and unbiased approach to finding relevant primary studies, and for extracting and aggregating the data from these. The use of systematic literature reviews in software engineering are discussed in (Kitchenham & Charters 2007) and a more general approach (based upon the social sciences) is provided in (Petticrew & Roberts 2006).
