CRE Training Lab

A training collaboration between the Centres of Research Excellence at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. Each episode presents tools and information on new topics aimed at early to mid career researchers and PhD students.

In this bonus episode Kelly Allen from Cochrane Australia talks about conducting a meta analysis as part of a systematic review. This episode follows our episode entitled 'Systematic Reviews and Cochrane'.

In this episode, we refer to this document, so it's important to have it handy while you're listening (or it just won't make much sense). 


Kelly Allen from Cochrane Australia takes us through the ins and outs of systematic reviews, both for those who intend on conducting them and for those who need to know how to read them.

The research community is evolving. The way in which we quantify legitimate research activities, judge research output, communicate our findings, share ideas and collaborate has changed in recent years. This seminar will explore how the evolution of open access policies, research metrics, peer review, crowdfunding and social media are changing the landscape of academic research. We'll look at how researchers are now more empowered than ever to promote their own work, drive opinion in their respective disciplines, and connect to funders and collaborators at unprecedented levels. As part of this seminar David will look at which platforms are trending in these areas, and provide links to some useful resources.

Dr David Martino is a Senior Research Officer with the Centre for Food and Allergy Research at Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and holds an Honorary Research Fellow appointment with the University of Melbourne.
