Overviews of systematic reviews: development and evaluation of methods

Guest Editor: Dr Joanne McKenzie

Systematic Reviews invites you to submit to our new thematic series, ‘Overviews of systematic reviews: development and evaluation of methods’.

The Editors will consider articles that: examine methods used in overviews; outline the development of a new method for overviews; evaluate the performance of methods for overviews; or examine issues of bias in overviews. Articles that apply a new method in an overview, where there is substantial development or critique of the method, will also be considered.

Manuscripts should be formatted according to our submission guidelines and submitted via the online submission system. In the submission system please make sure the correct collection title is chosen on the additional information tab. Please also indicate clearly in the covering letter that the manuscript is to be considered for the ‘Overviews of systematic reviews: development and evaluation of methods’ series. For further information, please email editorial@systematicreviewsjournal.com.

The deadline for submissions to this thematic series is 28 February 2018. Manuscripts submitted after this date will still be considered in the main body of the journal.
