  1. A, B, and C denote three different approaches for data abstraction; see the section “Study arms (Abstraction approaches)”. Random sequence is the permuted arrangement of three approaches for data abstraction. For example, sequence 1 indicates data abstractors will collect data from 6 unique articles using AABBCC approaches respectively
