Updating literature search results

Before submitting your scoping review manuscript for publication you may want to update the search results. This will ensure that anything that was published since the search was first run will be accounted for. Contact your collaborating librarian about running an updated search. 

Reviewing the search methods section

Your collaborating librarian can review the search methods section of your manuscript prior to submitting for publication. This ensures that the search methods are reported accurately. The PRISMA Scoping Review (PRISMA ScR) checklist states that you should "Present the full electronic search strategy for at least 1 database, including any limits used, such that it could be repeated."
