Wiki Version:
This OSF space is a prototype for an open, citable respository of search strategies for re-use in evidence syntheses (ES) and ES protocols. The repository will provide quick access to high-quality, easily-citable search strategies, saving time and effort during the ES development process. Each component represents a common concept found in ES search strategies across disciplines (geographies, populations, interventions, etc.) Search strategies are uploaded as individual .txt files. Each .txt file includes the following header: #concept (e.g. population) ##search strategy topic (e.g. smallholder farmers) ###database (e.g. CAB Abstracts) ####platform (e.g. Clarivate Analytics) #####DOI (e.g. 10.1038/s41477-020-00783-z) Developed by Kate Ghezzi-Kopel, Cornell University Library Last update: June 15, 2021
