Register your Systematic Review
PROSPERO is the first online facility to prospectively register systematic reviews. The register is designed to avoid the duplication of health research and provide transparency in the review process, with the aim of minimizing reporting bias.
Registering with PROSPERO
The registration form is electronic and can be accessed by joining/logging in to the PROSPERO website, http://www.crd.york.ac.uk/PROSPERO/ . Once logged in applicants just click on 'Register a review' and follow the instructions. The form is in four sections and required fields are clearly marked. Registrants can cut and paste sections from their protocol or type directly into fields (only require brief details). There is no need to complete the whole form on a single visit, all information is automatically saved and can be re-accessed at any time via the 'My Records' page once logged back in. Once all the required fields have been completed the submit button becomes active and can be selected once the registrant is ready.
