Abstract

In this issue, we have a special supplement focusing on contemporary reviews in cancer care. Literature reviewing as a method has grown exponentially over recent decades, with the inception of most research underpinned by a good quality review. As a result of the proliferation and types of evidence to synthesise, varying approaches have been developed and refined including, and not limited to the following:

scoping reviews (not analysing, but describing and incorporating different kinds of evidence, not just research) integrative reviews (both quantitative and qualitative) systematic reviews (which may include meta‐analysis) narrative reviews meta‐ethnography/meta‐synthesis (qualitative)
