Here we provide links to or pdf files of review protocols. If you would like to add your review protocol to this website,  so that later you can indicate that the review protocol was created prior to conduct of the review, please contact us. The review should be written using all headings listed in PRISMA-P . When a particular heading is not relevant – include but leave blank. We do not provide peer-review but provide a timestamped PDF that you can later refer to.
