PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses)
27 Feb 2018
The PRISMA is an evidence-based minimum set of items, which help authors to improve the reporting of systematic reviews and meta-analyses. The PRISMA flow diagram serves as a basis for reporting systematic reviews of research, particularly evaluations of interventions. PRISMA may also be useful for the critical appraisal of published systematic reviews; however, should not be used as a quality check instrument of systemic reviews.
