Q. Why should I use a filter [or inclusion/exclusion criteria] for the study methodology in a systematic review? What are some common filters used?
Methodology filters or inclusion/exclusion criteria are essential for honing in on literature that will help you to answer your question and for controlling the volume of literature to be screened. Your team may want to specify language, dates, locations, types of articles, types of studies, age of participants, types of intervention (e.g., dose, delivery method, and duration), and types of outcome interventions.
