Systematic Literature Review and Meta-analysis: A comparative study



Thirty thousand research journals now exist, and projections indicate that there will be 33,080-34,050 by 2025. The number of research articles is continually increasing, with millions now in existence. Selecting appropriate papers for a review might be difficult for a researcher. Finding the appropriate research and ideas to address this problem was made possible via a systematic review. Its main use is in the medical sphere, but it is also helpful in other academic domains. The PRISMA framework, which is provided by systematic reviews, makes it obvious how to incorporate articles that are relevant to the goals and research questions. The meta-analysis is a component of the systematic review that addresses statistical analysis and has a definite question of analysis. Similarities exist
between systematic literature in terms of determining appropriate academic articles, objectives, and questions. In terms of analysis, SR considers qualitative analysis, which should be conducted through a qualitative analysis process, while meta-analysis solely examines statistical data and produces reports in line with that analysis. Researchers must choose the appropriate research articles using a systematic review and they should be patience while conducting a systematic review and recommended to conduct it in a group.
