Writers who are new to manuscript writing and academic publishing, such as graduate students, will benefit from careful study of systematic review guidelines and from the advice of experienced authors.
Authors and reviewers look for potential bias and misuse of data (or observation) in every area of the study.
The results of different studies are compared and contrasted, using the research question as a guide.
It helps the reader quickly understand what is being presented in the review article.
