Document the Search Strategy
The librarian who did the search should write the methods section describing the search strategy. This should include:
- For every database, include database, platform or provider
- Search terms
- Start and end date for search of each database
- Grey literature
- Cited reference searching
According to the PRISMA standards, the full search strategy for at least one database, including limits used, such that it could be repeated, should be included.
