Can your readers reproduce your literature search? The literature search is the core methodology for a systematic review. Transparency and reproducibility are necessary to assess bias and reduce duplicative research. However, estimates of search “reproducibility” of a search range from .004% to 14% of published systematic reviews. PRISMA-S, which builds on the PRISMA reporting guideline, was created to help librarians, information specialists, and systematic reviewers transparently report searches.
