Why is it important?

Innovating in investigating researchers' perspectives on Scientific Initiation (SI). The proposed systematic review can inform institutional strategies to enhance SI programs, encouraging more effective researcher participation and strengthening students' scientific training.


As researchers, we believe that understanding motivations and impacts in Scientific Initiation (SI) can optimize the use of public resources, refine researcher training programs, and contribute to students' entry into postgraduate studies and a scientific career. Ultimately, we hope this study particularly benefits those needing to conduct a systematic review within the scientific community.
