The review report should specify the critical appraisal process and instruments that were actually used in the review process and the procedures for solving disagreements between reviewers. The review report should describe how the results of critical appraisal were used for the exclusion of studies from the review, if this is the case. The details of the decisions processes and criteria used for exclusion of studies based on results of critical appraisal should be explicitly provided. All details about the scoring systems and the cut-off scores for inclusion of studies in the review should be described and justified.
