Aims and scope

Systematic Reviews encompasses all aspects of the design, conduct and reporting of systematic reviews. The journal publishes high quality systematic review products including systematic review protocols, systematic reviews related to a very broad definition of health, rapid reviews, updates of already completed systematic reviews, and methods research related to the science of systematic reviews, such as decision modelling. At this time Systematic Reviews does not accept reviews of in vitro studies.  The journal also aims to ensure that the results of all well-conducted systematic reviews are published, regardless of their outcome.

Systematic Reviews is committed to the implementation of this major PRISMA update, and a notification will be posted here as to when and how the transition from the 2009 statement to PRISMA2020 will become required reporting for systematic review and meta-analysis submissions.
