While there are a lot of descriptive studies on sports injuries available for a variety of sports, there is not always a need to conduct a new descriptive study. Instead available study results can be used and, if needed, pooled together. Performing a proper review is, however, not as simple as merely describing what is known. This chapter focuses on different types of reviews, the associated methodologies, and how to conduct a proper review of the literature. It also gives guidelines on how to do so in the field of sports injury research.

Keywords:   review, meta-analysis, literature search, quality assessment, pooling
