When I was first introduced to Nested Knowledge, I had zero publications, I did not even know what a systematic review was. I didn’t know what a Meta-analysis was…but I was motivated and NK provided the tools for me to learn and grow.
The PRISMA Flow Diagram has become a standard part of any systematic review or meta-analysis, and with good reason– it is the most widely accepted method to show the process by which the studies included in a review were included (or excluded).

Though there are over 240 tools for systematic review on the SR Toolbox, only 24 are functioning, web-based softwares for pre-clinical or clinical review.
