In 2005, Arksey and O'Malley published the first methodological framework for conducting scoping studies. Implementation Science. 2010;5(1):69 DOI 10.1186/1748-5908-5-69 . Advancing the Field of Scoping Study Methodology . Introduction: Scoping reviews are an increasingly common approach to informing decision-making and research based on the identification and examination of the literature on a given topic or issue. They address ways to measure municipal solid waste and construction and demolition debris in a more comprehensive manner. Preview Scoping studies: advancing the methodology Levac D, Colquhoun H, O'Brien KK. Lastly, we propose additional considerations for scoping study methodology in order to support the advancement, application and relevance of scoping studies in health research. The meeting was organized into two days. A Scoping Review of Scoping Reviews: advancing the approach and enhancing the consistency. Journal Homepage. Scoping studies are an increasingly popular approach to reviewing health research evidence. The objectives for the first day were to facilitate knowledge transfer and exchange on scoping studies and to establish a clear, common definition of scoping studies as a research methodology. Scoping reviews draw on evidence from any research methodology and may also include evidence from non-research sources, such as policy. International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2005;8(1):19-32. 2014;5(4):371-385. Pham MT, Rajic A, Greig JD, et al. Arksey H. and O'Malley L. Scoping Studies: towards a methodological framework. e PRISMA-ScR). Upon discovering that we had similar challenges implementing the scoping study methodology, we decided to use our experiences to further develop the existing framework. Background: Scoping studies (or reviews) are a method used to comprehensively map evidence across a range of study designs in an area, with the aim of informing future research practice, programs and policy. However, no universal agreement exists on terminology, definition or methodological steps. Scoping studies are an increasingly popular approach to reviewing health research evidence. SUMMARY: Specific recommendations to clarify and enhance this methodology are outlined for each stage of the Arksey and O'Malley framework. Research Synthesis Methods. Continued debate and development about scoping study methodology will help to maximize the usefulness and rigor of scoping study findings within healthcare research and practice.
