The Systematic Review (SR) Toolbox was developed in 2014 to collate tools that can be used to support the systematic review process but the breadth of evidence synthesis methodologies has expanded greatly since its inception. We updated the SR Toolbox in 2022 to reflect these changes and also briefly analysed included tools and guidance to identify any potential gaps in what is currently available to researchers. The updated version of the SR Toolbox was launched on 13 May 2022, with 235 software tools and 112 guidance documents included. Our analysis of these tools and documents also identified potential gaps in guidance and software that could inform future research.
The Systematic Review Toolbox: keeping up to date with tools to support evidence synthesis
We updated the Systematic Review Toolbox, a platform for collating together tools and guidance that can be used to aid evidence synthesis process. Alongside this, we also briefly analysed the tools and guidance in the Toolbox at the time of the update to identify any potential gaps in what is currently available to researchers.
