There are numerous types of synthesizing reviews. Authors, Sutton, Clowes, Preson, and Booth, in their 2019 article identifed and categorized 48 review types. See article link on this page. Determining which type of review to use depends on the research goals or objectives, time constraints, and available published research literature. Each review type has strengths and limitations.
