Systematic reviews and meta-analyses in Public Health

Dear Colleagues,

We are calling for the submission of systematic reviews and meta-analyses on any topic related to public health, infectious diseases, epidemiology of infections, treatments of infections and disease risk.

In recent years, there has been a massive expansion of research output related to public health and prevention-related medical and pharmacological interventions that were considered non-public health. Therefore, there is an urgent need to synthesize and summarize the findings to take stock of what we know so far.

Systematic review refers to the summary of published findings and meta-analysis is a statistical analysis of the results of independent studies.

They involve a set of methods to systematically search for and synthesize evidence from published studies.

They are useful for reconciling inconsistencies across studies, allowing the integration and synthesis of existing knowledge, highlighting research gaps, and guiding subsequent research. We welcome systematic reviews and meta-analyses on topics within the domain of health, as well as in related fields of application, which may include but are not limited to the following areas: simple random‐effects meta‐analysis, frequentist and Bayesian methods etc.
