Synopses of Syntheses

Comprehensive summaries of all the research related to focused clinical questions.  These are often found in evidence-based abstraction journals.  Advantages are that a convenient summary of the corresponding synthesis is included and it often addresses the methodological quality of the synthesis and the clinical applicability of the findings.  A limitation is the extended timeline between publication of the original study and the synopsis.
