This paper reviews the recent literature on public involvement in systematic reviews. It includes a review of how organisations, mainly the Cochrane Network, involve the public, as well as how the public are involved in individual systematic reviews. It discusses the tensions that emerge when the public are involved in systematic reviews. It also identifies the strategies that supported good quality involvement and finally makes recommendations for good practice.
