This tool is designed to provide guidance and supporting material to reviewers on methods for the conduct and reporting of knowledge synthesis. As a pilot project, the current version of the tool only identifies methods for knowledge synthesis of quantitative studies. A future iteration will be developed for qualitative evidence synthesis. For more information on qualitative studies, please refer to the following links: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26891948 and https://www.integrate-hta.eu/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Guidance-on-choosing-qualitative-evidence-synthesis-methods-for-use-in-HTA-of-complex-interventions.pdf.
