Guidance on reporting review protocols: PRISMA-P

The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses for Protocols (PRISMA-P) Statement has been published in the journal Systematic Reviews. The 17-item checklist aims to “facilitate the preparation and reporting of a robust protocol for the systematic review”. It is supported by an Elaboration and Explanation paper in the BMJ, which details the need for each checklist item and provides a model example.

Accompanying blogs also highlight the role of accurate reporting, registration and publication of systematic review protocols in reducing waste in research:
