Excel Workbooks for Systematic Reviews & Corresponding Handouts: Excel Workbooks for SRs

This guide will walk you through the steps of documenting searches, search results, citation screening decisions, and article review decisions.

Excel Workbooks for Systematic Reviews

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.

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.
