Evidence Analysis Manual

Evidence Analysis Manual

The Evidence Analysis Manual was created by the Academy to guide expert workgroup members and evidence analysts to understand and carry out the process of conducting a systematic review. This 107-page guide explains the rigorous 5-step process followed by the Academy. It includes information on developing 'good' research questions; conducting a thorough literature search; description of research designs; how to appraise a research article; the Academy's risk of bias tool; and much more. We encourage the use of our methodology and resources. Please credit as follows:  ©2022 Evidence Analysis Manual Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
