This review presentation first introduces the concepts and approaches necessary for the practice of Evidence-based Medicine (EBM). It then gives details about the importance, need, usefulness and impacts of the systematic reviews (SR) as tools for the practice of EBM. Ways to involve in preparing SR have also been mentioned. The aim is to inform, guide and motivate the prospective clinicians, researchers and academics toward the EBM agenda and to acquaint those concerned and interested in the subject about the conduct of SR. Despite the many obvious advantages of the EBM practice process, the concern of the critics of EBM has also been mentioned. This has been done by reviewing the identified relevant literature on the various aspects and issues of the topic. This is a review article.
