Systematic Reviews

Cite Your Protocol in Abstracts and Articles

After you register your protocol and it's approved, you will get a PROSPERO registry number and URL. 


You can then publish your protocol in a journal. This lets everyone know the details of your project and that a completed systematic review will soon be published.


You will include the PROSPERO registration number in both the protocol and published systematic review. 


Within the text of your published systematic review, you will cite the PROSPERO registration number and published protocol.
