Checklists for Assessing Study Qualities Use one of our checklists for assessing the methodological quality of a study and improve the design and reporting of your study. The methodological quality of studies on measurement properties can be assessed for different purposes, for example, as guidance for designing or reporting your study on measurement properties, to determine the risk of bias in single studies included in a systematic review of outcome measurement instruments or by reviewers or journal editors to appraise the methodological quality of articles or grant applications of studies on measurement properties. Therefore, we have developed the COSMIN Risk of Bias checklist, and we are currently developing a COSMIN Study Design checklist and a COSMIN Reporting checklist for these different purposes as the standards included in each checklist will be slightly different.

MMAT : mixed methods appraisal tool [licensed for non-commercial use only] / FrontPage Aim of this WIKI: To enable collaborative work for developing a Mixed Methods Appraisal Tool (MMAT).

The MMAT was first published in 2009.
Using Filters - Searching for Systematic Reviews - LibGuides at King’s College London Some of the databases (including those on the Ovid platform, the HDAS NHS platform, and CINAHL) allow searches to be undertaken by publication or document type e.g. review, research, randomized controlled trial, editorial or letter. The actual publication types will differ across the different databases. Publication types, like subject headings, are assigned to each article at the point the article is added to the database.
