Systematic reviews are an integral part of evidence based practice, and efforts must be made to ensure every published systematic review is clear, accurate, and fully replicable. Because systematic reviews (and other types of knowledge syntheses) are produced around the world by a wide array of researchers and institutions, specialised organisations have developed sets of standards for the conduct and publication of systematic reviews and other research reviews.
