What is a Protocol

In a protocol, which should be completed at the outset of the project, the team describes the rationale for the review, the objectives; and the methods that will be used to locate, select, and critically appraise studies.

Protocols can vary in length, but they tend to include core pieces of information about the review such as:

  • Review Question
  • Proposed Timeline
  • Team members
  • Methodology
  • Search Strategies
