Systematic reviews and meta-analyses: a step-by-step guide

Step 8

Presenting results (writing the report)


It is essential that your review is presented clearly, and in accordance with current best practice. For general guidance see the Equator network site here.

The PRISMA statement and this related article by Liberati et al. (2009) provides very clear guidance on reporting of systematic reviews, including a flow chart of studies included, and there is useful advice on reporting meta-analysis of observational studies (MOOSE) at JAMA, 2000 PMID: 10789670.
