Table 2 Research questions and PICOS elements of three scoping reviews (step 2)

From: A review protocol on research partnerships: a Coordinated Multicenter Team approach

  Scoping review 2a Scoping review 2b Scoping review 2c
Framework domains Principles and strategies Outcomes, impacts, and tools Research methodologies and methods
Primary research question(s) What principles and strategies are used to guide the different types of health research partnerships? - What are the reported outcomes and impacts of the different types of health research partnerships?
- What are the available measurement tools for assessing the outcomes and impact of the different types of health research partnerships?
What research methodologies and methods have been used to explicitly study or evaluate the partnering process underpinning health research partnership?
Population* Researchers, clinician scientists, trainees, policy and decision-makers, funders, patients, and other stakeholders
Intervention Different types of health research partnerships Different types of health research partnerships Any study design that includes a description of the methodology and/or methods used to explicitly study or evaluate the different types of health research partnership processes
Comparators Not Applicable Not Applicable No evaluation/assessment of health research partnerships
Primary outcomes Principles and strategies Outcomes, impacts and their characteristics, tools, tool properties Research methodologies and methods
Secondary outcomes* General descriptive study characteristics and partnership characteristics**
Other criteria Decisions regarding other inclusion and exclusion criteria, such as time span, databases, study designs, will be contingent on the terminology findings arising in Study 1a—Review of Reviews.
  1. *These criteria are the same in all three scoping reviews. **Examples of descriptive characteristics are author, year, research discipline, population, and context. Examples of partnership characteristics are partnership term definition, form of partnership, and partnership members. PICOS population, intervention, comparators, outcomes, study design
