Welcome to CREST_Triage, the tool for helping journal editors decide whether to advance a systematic review (SR) submission to peer-review.
CREST_Triage provides a structured approach to initial SR submission appraisal. It should take 30-60 minutes to complete the triage report and make a decision.
The tool facilitates consistent, fair decision-making by encouraging assessment of each SR submission according to the same set of comprehensive criteria.
CREST_Triage produces a simple triage report, formatted for easy copy-pasting into any editorial management system.
