PRISMA2020 Flow Diagram

You can use this package to produce a flow diagram that conforms to the PRISMA 2020 standards using the PRISMA_flowdiagram() function. The data can be manually entered into the function, or loaded up using the template CSV file provided in ‘INST/EXTDATA/’. The function, (if ‘interactive = TRUE’) produces an interactive HTML ouput with each box linking to a specific page (e.g. of search results or methods details), and hover-over tooltips for further information.

The ‘Previous’ and ‘Other’ study arms of the flowchart can be toggled on and off and removed or added to the diagram by specifying this in the function inputs.

A static version is produced otherwise.

See the interactive template here.
