Evidence Based Practice: Write a Systematic Review

This Evidence Based Practice site, created and maintained by Kornhauser Health Sciences Library, contains carefully selected and compiled resources for writing, promoting, and using evidence based research.

" PRISMA is an evidence-based minimum set of items for reporting in systematic reviews and meta-analyses. PRISMA focuses on the reporting of reviews evaluating randomized trials, but can also be used as a basis for reporting systematic reviews of other types of research, particularly evaluations of interventions."

Who should use PRISMA?
  • Authors: PRISMA aims to help authors improve the reporting of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
  • Journal Peer reviewers and editors: PRISMA may also be useful for critical appraisal of published systematic reviews, although it is not a quality assessment instrument to gauge the quality of a systematic review.
