The search strategy for electronic databases should be described in sufficient detail to allow that

  • an explanation could be provided regarding any study not included in the final report (identified by electronic sources search or not)

The template required by KCE to describe a search strategy is provided in attachment.

All identified references must be exported, preferably in a text file to be imported in a Reference Management Software (see appendix for technical description).
