PRISMA developers announce the PRISMA for Abstracts checklist
The PRISMA Statement was published in 2009 to provide guidance for reports of systematic reviews. The Statement included a brief item about the abstract. The developers of the PRISMA Statement have announced an extension which provides a checklist to cover the abstract in more detail, intended to "give authors a framework for condensing their systematic review into the essentials for an abstract that will facilitate a quick assessment of review validity, provide an explicit summary of results, facilitate pre-publication or conference selection peer review, and enable efficient perusal of electronic search results."
