PRISMA-S: an extension to the PRISMA Statement for Reporting Literature Searches in Systematic Reviews

PRISMA-S is a new tool that provides guidance for reporting literature searches for maximum transparency and reproducibility. Based on an extensive process of international consensus building, it provides guidance, examples, and evidence for reporting searches. In this Cochrane Learning Live & Information Retrieval Methods Group webinar, we'll briefly introduce PRISMA-S and how to use it effectively, with an emphasis on important changes between PRISMA 2009 and PRISMA-S.

This webinar is aimed for authors and information specialists conducting, documenting, or reporting searches and information retrieval methods as part of systematic reviews or related review types.
