Inside the Black Box of Interactions Between Programs and Participants: Re-conceptualizing Subgroups for Fatherhood Program Evaluation. APPENDIX C: APPROACH TO SEARCHING AND SELECTING STUDIES FOR LITERATURE REVIEW ON PSYCHOSOCIAL PREDICTORS

10/12/2012



Table C.1 lists the search terms we used to find relevant studies for the literature review. We conducted the search in multiple steps by combining the target group and outcome domains search terms with each row in set A. The following databases were included in our search:

·      Academic Search Premier

·      Campbell Collaboration

·      CINAHL with Full Text

·      Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials

·      Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

·      Cochrane Methodology Register

·      Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects

·      Dissertation Abstracts International; EconLit

·      Education Research Complete

·      ERIC

·      PsycINFO

·      SocIndex with Full Text

·      SocLit

Our initial search of these databases yielded 1,817 studies. We then proceeded to screen out studies for one or more of the following reasons:

·      The article was not an empirical study (that is, it was a literature review or research review)

·      The analytic sample used in the study did not include fathers

·      The study did not examine a psychosocial predictor of interest

·      The study did not examine a fatherhood outcome of interest

·      The study did not examine associations between predictors and outcomes of interest (that is, descriptive-only studies, including qualitative studies)

·      Results were not presented separately for fathers
