How to write a systematic review, a narrative review, a scoping review or a meta-analysis

As I mentioned on Twitter, on my blog, I write about the mechanics and heuristics of how *I* conduct a literature review. I share my method, which is systematic. With my blog posts, I teach my students and research assistants a systematic approach to read, annotate and write their literature reviews.

But there are different types of reviews and it is important for students, early career scholars and researchers to know that there is a broad range of reviews. Many of these are actual scholarly products that get published.

And here are a few systematic literature reviews I found interesting and well done.
