TRANSPARENT REPORTING of SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS and META-ANALYSES

Welcome to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) website!

PRISMA is an evidence-based minimum set of items for reporting in systematic reviews and meta-analyses. PRISMA primarily focuses on the reporting of reviews evaluating the effects of interventions, but can also be used as a basis for reporting systematic reviews with objectives other than evaluating interventions (e.g. evaluating aetiology, prevalence, diagnosis or prognosis).

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.

PRISMA Website re-design

PRISMA Extensions!

Several PRISMA extensions have been published in 2015 so far.

These are in addition to the PRISMA Abstract and Equity extensions, all found on the PRISMA website, here.
