Quality assessment

Excel AMSTAR 2 checklist

The AMSTAR 2 checklist is widely used in assessing the quality and internal validity of review evidence. This is something we do a lot in our overview of reviews. However, completing the AMSTAR2 is not straightforward. Alexander Saeri built a spreadsheet to make this easier. You can easily import this into Google Docs to make collaborative editing easier.
