SYSTEMATIC REVIEW REGISTER
JBI has developed a collection of world-class resources driven by the needs of health professionals and consumers worldwide.
Registration of Systematic Review Titles
Please note: this register is for the use of JBI affiliated entities ONLY. Registration of a systematic review title on the JBI website is to promote collaboration between affiliated entities via highlighting current work to other JBI review authors and to recognise that the registered topic is currently in development to avoid any unintended and/or unnecessary duplication of research effort.
Registered systematic reviews that are currently underway are listed below. Protocols for these reviews may already be published or in preparation for publication within six months of initial registration. To avoid duplication, titles in this list should not be replicated by other review authors. Please contact the listed Primary Reviewer or the JBI Synthesis Science Unit if you would like further information about any of these registered reviews.
Registration of titles on this web page does not in any way constitute acceptance of the topic by JBI Evidence Synthesis.

Obtaining consent for research on risky behaviors among adolescents in Canada: a scoping review protocol
The University of New Brunswick (UNB) Saint John Collaboration for Evidence-Informed Healthcare: A JBI Centre of Excellence
This scoping review will focus on research studies that involve the participation of adolescents who are 14 to 19 years of age, who have consented or provided assent to participate in research about risky behaviors in Canada. The review will also include descriptive reports, as well as policy and opinion papers related to obtaining consent in research about risky behaviors among adolescents in Canada who are 14 to 19 years of age.
This scoping review addresses the concept of informed consent practices in research on risky behaviors among adolescents. Obtaining informed consent is a process through which a researcher gains the permission of an individual to take part in a research study. This process involves providing the prospective participant with information on the purpose of the study and details about their role if they choose to participate. Risky behaviors are defined as purposive behaviors that involve a marked potential for negative consequences for the individual or for others.
