Body (subtopics being addressed): Although the structure may vary based in the sub-topics or review questions being addresses. For example, if you are reviewing three different methodologies, you might divide the body of the article into three sections, each discussing one of the methods. In these sections, be sure to describe the research methods and evaluate how studies were conducted focusing on the study design and analysis e.g., intention to treat versus completers/retention rate, compare studies, and discuss their implications. Structure in thematic subheadings properly labeled by conclusions Each subsection author paraphrases key conclusions, critique and discussions showing how the results including key figures/data (images) from the articles reviewed
Conclusions: You should develop the conclusion by briefly restating the rationale for your review and the purpose of the article, then discussing the conclusions you have drawn. You should also discuss the implications of your review findings and where you think research in this field should go from here.
Literature Cited: Use a standardized referencing system. A widely used one in the medical literature is the AMA style.
