2.2 Search strategies

Given the short timeframe for delivering this rapid review, we will adopt a set of search limits that will allow us to identify and retrieve the most relevant information in the shortest period.

2.2.1 Strategy 1 (Scotland only) = #1 and #2 and #3 and #4 and #6

  • Limits 1: 2010-current; Search by titles.
  • Limits 2: 2010-current; Search by title and abstracts.

2.2.2 Strategy 2 (UK) = #1 and #2 and #3 and #4 and #5

  • Limits 1: 2010-current; Search by titles.
  • Limits 2: 2010-current; Search by title and abstracts.

2.2.3 Strategy 3 (Any country) = #1 and #2 and #3 and #4

  • Limits 1: 2010-current; Search by titles.
  • Limits 2: 2010-current; Search by title and abstracts.

2.2.4 Strategy 4 (No reviews, UK) = #1 and #2 and #3 and #5

  • Limits 1: 2010-current; Search by titles.
  • Limits 2: 2010-current; Search by title and abstracts.

2.3 Databases

The employment of strategies will be hierarchical (from 1 to 4), depending on the amount of relevant evidence identified by each search. For example: Limits 2 of Strategy 1 will be only employed if Limits 1 of Strategy 1 does not convey the amount of relevant information necessary to respond the research question, and so on.2.3 Databases:

The following databases were searched: MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycInfo, PsycArticles, CINAHL, and Web of Science (including Web of Science Core Collection, BIOSIS Citation Index, BIOSIS

Previews, CABI: CAB Abstracts, Current Contents Connect, Data Citation Index, Derwent Innovations Index, KCI-Korean Journal Database, Russian Science Citation Index, SciELO Citation Index, Zoological Record).
