Conclusion In this chapter we have focused on how the idea of systematic review has traveled, how second-order evidence-producing organizations have become institutionalized and on how they conduct review practice. The analysis above has shown that the idea of establishing second-order evidence-producing organizations in order to work out systematic reviews is not one homogenous idea, but rather an idea embracing several ideational dimensions.
