Qualitative evidence synthesis can be defined as the systematic and thoughtful pulling together of research insights generated in primary qualitative research papers reporting on similar topics of interest. This entry introduces researchers from a range of different disciplines to the methodological area of meta-level qualitative research. It showcases the many options available to review authors and offers some guidance on how to make sense of the multiple epistemological, theoretical, and methodological interpretations of meta-synthesis. In addition, it outlines a stepwise procedure on how to conduct a meta-synthesis of qualitative research studies and what potential choices review authors need to make, either on a protocol level or during the process of conducting a review.
