What to Include in Your Systematic Review or Meta-Analyses Report? PRISMA has an Updated Checklist
Doing a systematic review or meta-analysis?
Besides standards like the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions, another important standard is the PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items of Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses) statement. First released in 2009, this statement provides a minimum set of information that you may want to include in your systematic review or meta-analysis report.
The new PRISMA 2020 statement was published in March 2021. This statement includes a 27-item checklist addressing the introduction, methods, results and discussion sections of a systematic review report as well as an updated flow diagram showing the flow of information through the different phrases of the systematic review.
