In principle, large amounts of data can be easily collected, structured and sorted with data processing programs such as Excel. Another option is to use literature management programs such as EndNote, Citavi or Zotero. The Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB Dresden) provides an overview of current literature management programs . Software for qualitative data analysis such as NVivo is equally suited for data processing. A comprehensive overview of the features of different tools that support the SLR process can be found in Bandara et al. (2015).

Our online-self study course "Managing literature with Citavi" shows you how to use the reference management software Citavi.

When conducting an SLR, you should specify for each hit the database from which it originates and the date on which the query was made. In addition, you should always indicate how many hits you have identified in the various databases or, for example, by manual search.

Exporting data from literature databases

Exporting from literature databases is very easy. In Business Source Complete , you must first click on the “Share” button in the hit list, then “Email a link to download exported results” at the very bottom and then select the appropriate format for the respective literature program.

In the Web of Science database, you must select “Export” and select the relevant format. Tip: You can adjust the extracted data fields. Since for example the abstract is not automatically exported, decide which data fields are of interest for you.

Exporting data from the literature database EconBiz is somewhat more complex. Here you must first create a marked list and then select each hit individually and add it to the marked list. Afterwards, articles on the list can be exported.

After merging all hits from the various databases, duplicate entries (duplicates) are deleted.

Proceed to step 5: Applying criteria for inclusion and exclusion
