Role of Religiosity in the Lives of the Low-Income Population: A Comprehensive Review of the Evidence. The Review Phase


Once the sifting phase was completed, resulting in a final list of bibliographic references, the review phase began. All team members used a common set of protocols for reviewing articles, completing common, predefined user fields in the central Refworks database. After all of the selected articles were reviewed, all references with completed annotations from the review process were organized by subject area and exported into tables to inform the report. Table 1-1 summarizes the number of studies that met the selection criteria.
