Research synthesis pursues systematic (i.e., exhaustive, trustworthy, and replicable) understandings of the state of knowledge that has accumulated about a given problem across primary research studies. Its foremost purpose is to integrate available research evidence, such that both patterns and inconsistencies (in both findings andmethods) may be identified with precision. Research synthesis emerged from a methodological movement in the 1970s, in response to dissatisfaction with several major weaknesses inherent in traditional approaches to reviewing. By the late 1970s it had crystallized into a formal methodological approach, and since the 1990s its application to synthesizing primary research in a variety of fields has become widespread.
