A narrative literature review is generally subjective in its selection of studies, and because of this, is also subjective in the summation and conclusions made about the studies. Narrative reviews provide little contribution to understandings about the field as they are opinion-based, not science-based. Systematic reviews of the research literature, however, adopt a scientific approach and well-defined processes that provide a targeted, thorough, and objective summation of the research field. A systematic literature review of the research field can therefore provide a rigorous understanding about current evidence, and will provide a fundamental evidence-based contribution to intervention development.
