This page has been created for the APHA Systematic Review Learning Institute attendees.

Excel Workbooks for Systematic Reviews

Workbooks for 3 SR participants are coming December 1st! See the announcement below.

The Excel Workbooks enable you to document all of your searches and results (both database and non-database), calculate Cohen's kappa, screen titles & abstracts (1 or 2 people); and record full text decisions. The last worksheet in the PRIMARY workbook contains a PRISMA flowchart.

If you discover a problem with a formula, you have a question on how to use the workbook, or you have a suggestion for improvement, please contact Helena VonVille: helena.m.vonville at or by phone: 713-500-9131.

Be sure you DOWNLOAD (i.e. SAVE AS) each workbook before opening. The filename is sometimes corrupted if you go straight to opening the workbook.
