At Traverse Science, structured review is the core of what we do. We work with you to identify a focused research question, then organize the relevant science in a database that powers business decisions. With our help, you can understand the evidence, align business units, empower teams, and produce results, fast.
We also offer a variety of custom solutions to tailor your review
with additional assets that fully leverage the evidence
Traverse Science offers three levels of review:
Level 1: a view from the top
for when you need the big picture: organized information from the abstract
A high-level review meant to capture the literature in broad strokes. By extracting data from the abstract only, we focus on primary outcomes and don’t get bogged down. This review is great if you want to explore a new domain, identify key opinion leaders, or learn what’s what on a broad hypothesis before diving deeper.
what to expect:
- basic bibliographic data
- general study design
- primary qualitative outcomes
- PRISMA table
Level 2: horizon scan
for when you need to see it all: thorough evidence to power decisions
Our mid-level review is meant to balance depth of evidence with high levels of comparability between studies. By extracting data from the full-text, we gain insights beyond just the basics. Qualitative outcome measurements and domain-level outccome assessments condense a broad variety of measurements so you can see the most important relationships, quickly.
you get everything from level 1, plus:
- data extraction from full text
- in-depth study design
- domain-level outcomes
- qualitative outcome classification
Level 3: deep dive
for when you’re hungry for more: analysis that satiates big appetites for evidence
Our most in-depth review is meant for cases where the nitty-gritty is key. We search the full- texts and verify using supplemental material to make sure you have the most accurate information available. Quantitative data and P-values allow you to evaluate the strength of relationships in your database, while complete group descriptions make it easy to organize based on the details that matter to you.
