Structure of the protocol
Introduction
Summarise the main aspects of the topic under review.
Ensure that introduction explains the population,
concept(s) and context to inform the inclusion criteria
later in the protocol. A rationale should be provided for
each element.
Summarise what is known and what is not known -
justifying the scoping review.
End with the overarching objective of the review and the
specific questions it will address.
Inclusion criteria
Details of the Population, concept and context. This
should be very specific and include justification.
Exclusion criteria can be included here.
This section should also state the types of studies that
will be used.
The criteria in this section will be used to undertake the
screening of the studies obtained in the search so it is
important that they are detailed explicitly
Search strategy
Give information about the databases that will be used
and any additional sources, depending on the inclusion
criteria specified earlier. Language and time frames can
be included in this section.
A table with keywords, Boolean operators, truncation etc
should be included to show exactly how the search will
be carried out.
Study selection
Describe how the studies will be examined and how
uncertainties about inclusion will be resolved.
Data extraction
This section should detail what data will be extracted
and any forms that will be used. Pre-existing data
extraction documents are available. Consider if you are
going to use these or if you are going to customise them
or make one up. If you do customise or make a new
form, you will need to explain that you will pilot the form
first.
Reporting the results
You need to think about how will present the results so
that they answer the overall objective and the specific
questions. You could use the concepts to draw together
the information.
