What is the PRISMA checklist?

Question Description: 

I got this comment from the journal: "We note that this manuscript is a meta-analysis; our author guidelines therefore require that you use Prisma guidance to help improve reporting quality of this type of study. Please upload a copy of the completed PRISMA checklist as supporting information." What should I do?


The PRISMA Statement is a document that consists of a 27-item checklist and a flow diagram and aims to guide authors on how to develop a Systematic Review protocol and what to include when writing the review. Anybody writing a systematic review or meta-analysis needs to fill the PRISMA chceklist and submit it along with their article. Most journals have this as a requirement. 

What you need to do is go to the link that I have provided, download the checklist, fill up the details and upload it through the online submission system under the category "supporting information."
