Practical guidance for using multiple data sources in systematic reviews and meta‐analyses (with examples from the MUDS study)

Practical guidance for using multiple data sources in systematic reviews and meta‐analyses... Data for individual trials included in systematic reviews may be available in multiple sources. For example, a single trial might be reported in 2 journal articles and 3 conference abstracts. Because of differences across sources, source selection can influence the results of systematic reviews. We used our experience in the Multiple Data Sources in Systematic Reviews (MUDS) study, and evidence from previous studies, to develop practical guidance for using multiple data sources in systematic reviews. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research Synthesis Methods Wiley

Abstract

Data for individual trials included in systematic reviews may be available in multiple sources. For example, a single trial might be reported in 2 journal articles and 3 conference abstracts. Because of differences across sources, source selection can influence the results of systematic reviews. We used our experience in the Multiple Data Sources in Systematic Reviews (MUDS) study, and evidence from previous studies, to develop practical guidance for using multiple data sources in systematic reviews.
