Evidence informs guidance and public health decisions. In disease outbreaks, evidence is often scarce but accumulates rapidly. We need solutions to keep track of the emerging evidence. One of these solutions was suggested by Elliot et al.: the living systematic review. A review that is updated as soon as new information becomes available.
On this website, we explain how we set up a Living Systematic Review that can:
In our 2018 paper (Counotte et al.), we describe the workflow of conducting a living systematic review.
We start by collecting data from different data sources. Here, we describe how to get references from medRxiv, bioRxiv and PubMed. We also include information from EMBASE via Ovid, but are we are currently not at liberty to share our methods.
Here you find the most current version of the reference data. This is the same data that is available through (the shiny app). An annotated ‘pre-screened’ dataset will become available early next week (24.03.2020).
