Reporting Guidelines

Guidelines on what to report when writing up a KS review are available for several review types and specific topics. It is important to remember that these guidelines do not tell you how to conduct a review, they only tell you what information to include in your manuscript. See the recommended resources for the individual review types for links to methodological guidance. 

PLEASE NOTE: The PRISMA ( website is experiencing difficulties.  Alternative access to the PRISMA protocol checklist and other PRISMA statements is available on the Equator Network website or contact an NJM health sciences librarian or for assistance finding the PRISMA guidance documents you need.
