Lake, W, Wallin, M, Boyd, WE, Woolcott, G, Boyd, W, Foster, A & Markopoulos, C 2018, 'Optimising the efficacy of hybrid academic terms: lessons from a systematic review process', Australian Universities' Review, vol. 60, no. 1, pp. 16-24.
Undertaking a systematic review can have many benefits, beyond any theoretical or conceptual discoveries pertaining to the underlying research question. This paper explores the value of utilising a hybrid academic team when undertaking the systematic review process, and shares a range of practical strategies. The paper also comments on how such a hybrid team sits in a continuum of cooperation, coordination and collaboration. Key recommendations include choosing a great team, communicating well, documenting everything, and being explicit – for the benefit of your research team, and the readers of your systematic review.
