A systematic review is a research method dedicated to collecting and synthesizing available sources to produce new knowledge, which may highly support evidence-based decision making. The process of a systematic review can be modelled to serve as a guide for the researchers. The systematic review process consists of a planning, conducting and reporting stage, that each contain several steps. This work intends to model a guide to be used by researchers conducting a systematic review. The full process is captured in a goal refinement tree and the elements of the goal refinement tree are used as input for the design of a protocol model. Use cases of the protocol model are presented, based on analyses of abstractions that can be used to design a support system for conducting systematic reviews.
