PRISMA Flow Diagram Generator

This tool, developed by PRISMA, can be used to develop a PRISMA flow diagram in order to report on systematic reviews. The flow diagram depicts the flow of information through the different phases of a systematic review. It maps out the number of records identified, included and excluded, and the reasons for exclusions.

This tool is undergoing maintenance, and may not be available.

Excerpt

The aim of the PRISMA Statement is to help authors report a wide array of systematic reviews to assess the benefits and harms of a health care intervention. PRISMA focuses on ways in which authors can ensure the transparent and complete reporting of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.

We have adopted the definitions of systematic review and meta-analysis used by the Cochrane Collaboration [9]. A systematic review is a review of a clearly formulated question that uses systematic and explicit methods to identify, select, and critically appraise relevant research, and to collect and analyze data from the studies that are included in the review. Statistical methods (meta-analysis) may or may not be used to analyze and summarize the results of the included studies. Meta-analysis refers to the use of statistical techniques in a systematic review to integrate the results of included studies.

Thanks for letting us know Yasir.

It seems to have been removed from the THeTA website. I'll see what I can find for you. 

Best wishes, 

Emma

Hi, the Prisma Generator is still not back up on the site. Please can it be added again? There isn't another one that I can find.

Hi Zana, 

We've been in touch with the creators of PRISMA. They are repairing the code, so it is unavailable at present. We will update the page as soon as we know PRISMA is working again. In the meantime you might like to read more about the PRISMA project here http://prisma-statement.org/. 

Best wishes, 

Emma
