Knowledge synthesis is an important part of research; It provides readers/researchers with the current level of understanding of a topic, identifies gaps in a field of knowledge and directs future research pathways. The gold standard of knowledge synthesis is commonly agreed to be 'systematic review', however a variety of review typologies exist. The type of review should be chosen not through common practice but because it is appropriate for the task and aligns with the methodological underpinnings of a proposed project.
