What is a Scoping Review?
Scoping Reviews explore the breadth of evidence on a research topic, synthesizes knowledge on a research question, and outlines emerging literature in a field. It involves mapping concepts, gathering the types of evidence on a subject, and discovering gaps in research. A scoping review is often conducted to determine if a systematic review is viable and will provide insights into the kinds of evidence that are available in a field and how research has been conducted on a topic.
