PROSPERO supports open access data repository
PROSPERO supports transparency, avoiding duplication of research effort and sharing data and information. We are therefore pleased to endorse the Systematic Review Data Repository (SRDR) initiative.
The SRDR platform facilitates the extraction and management of data for systematic reviews and meta-analyses, creating a central database that can be critiqued, updated, and augmented on an ongoing basis.
By facilitating open access to extracted data, SRDR helps to provide transparency and reliability in the systematic review process and a more efficient means of producing and updating systematic reviews. SRDR also aims to promote cooperation and utilization across related resources, including PROSPERO.
We encourage PROSPERO registrants to make their extracted data available through SRDR or other data repositories and to include relevant details of planned data storage and sharing in their PROSPERO record.
SRDR was developed by the Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) at Tufts Medical Center, it is now maintained by the Brown University Evidence-based Practice Center with support from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
