TRANSPARENT REPORTING of SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS and META-ANALYSES

PRISMA for Scoping Reviews

The PRISMA extension for scoping reviews was published in 2018. The checklist contains 20 essential reporting items and 2 optional items to include when completing a scoping review. Scoping reviews serve to synthesize evidence and assess the scope of literature on a topic. Among other objectives, scoping reviews help determine whether a systematic review of the literature is warranted.
