USDA’s Nutrition Evidence Library systematic reviews are transparent and accessible to the public. Documentation from each step of the systematic review process for all reviews completed by the NEL can be found on this website. This includes research questions, literature selection criteria (inclusion/ exclusion criteria), search strategies, lists of included and excluded studies (with rationale), assessment of the risk of bias of included studies, evidence summaries and tables, key findings, graded conclusion statements, and research recommendations.
