Abstract:   (923 Views)
Background and Objectives: Scoping review is a type of rather new review study which can especially design for complex biomedical issues such as suicidal behavior. The chief aim of the current preliminary meta-review was to determine what scoping reviews tell us about suicide and its prevention.
Materials and Methods: In this preliminary meta-review, PubMed search engine was searched by using “scoping” and “suicide” as the main keywords that should be required to appear within the title and the abstract of the article.
Results: Twenty one articles were retrieved and from them, eleven articles were included in the current study. The results highlight that scoping review has been entered the area of suicide research since 2013, and since then its usage has been flourishing. The topics of the retrieved papers included the epidemiology of suicidal behavior in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICS), migrants from these countries, indigenous communities, and some other complex issues in the area of suicide research.
Conclusion: Given the suitability and flourishing use of scoping review in the area of suicide research, it would be wise to figure out a rather robust and comprehensive methodology for such studies and to encourage its usage especially in LMICS
