Writing systematic, scoping, and app reviews: Summarising and appraising best evidence

Since the last BJOT editorial on reviews (Unsworth, 2017), we have been delighted with the number and increased quality of submissions we have received in the review category. To continue to support authors to submit the highest quality review articles, this editorial presents further guidance on the kinds of reviews BJOT prioritises for consideration for publication. It also provides information on the critical appraisal and quality review tools that authors can use to review both literature and health applications (software ‘apps’). When submitting a review, please also see the journal’s web page and submission guidance for information on our current policy regarding review submission, as this information changes as we update and revise our priorities for the journal. For example, at present we particularly encourage systematic reviews, and we plan to include at least one systematic review in any special issue.
