Evidence Call for Grey Literature for a systematic review of the wellbeing outcomes of music and singing in adults and the processes by which wellbeing outcomes are achieved.
By grey literature we mean “literature that is not formally published in sources such as books or journal articles” (Lefebvre, Manheimer, & Glanville, 2008, p. 106). This may be produced by charities, government departments, businesses, community groups and others; and may include reports, theses or dissertations, trials, and more.
In this instance we’re looking for evaluation reports.
We will accept for review and possible inclusion in our systematic review using the following criteria:
- submissions must be evaluation reports only
- reports submitted must be completed in the past 3 years (2013-2016) and include
- author details (individuals, groups or organisations)
- evaluation methods may be qualitative, quantitative methods or mixed methods
- the central report objective must be the evaluation of music or singing intervention
Please note the following condition for review of grey literature:
- Evidence can only be reviewed for inclusion in the work of the Culture and Sport programme if submitted through this call.
- Evidence submitted to individual researchers in the programme cannot be considered.
- If you have previously sent documents to the culture and sport team please re-submit through this call.
Please send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include ‘Music and Singing Evidence’ in the subject line.
The deadline for submissions is the 10th June 2016
Please note additional invite for submission of primary data sets for review:
- Primary data sets used in submitted reports can also be submitted
- Primary data may be qualitative or quantitative and in excel or word formats.
