Information on how to conduct systematic reviews in the health sciences.

Create & Register Your Protocol


Creating a protocol is an important part of creating a systematic review.  PRISMA-P provides a method for doing this that will work with the PROSPERO system for registering protocols for systematic reviews & meta-analyses.

Preferred reporting items for systematic review and meta-analysis protocols.



PROSPERO (International Prospective Register of Ongoing Systematic Reviews):  registering your protocol may reduce duplication of effort & the publication bias of systematic reviews.
