We recommend…

As you can see, it’s a lot of work to extract data in one form and then transfer it to SRDR+.

That’s why we recommend just entering your data directly into SRDR+. This approach is not only more efficient, but it also makes it easier to search for data across multiple studies in your systematic review. However, if you’re, for example, updating a review that was conducted using a different data extraction form, you may need to enter data from those forms into the new updated review in SRDR+.

If you do have to enter your data from another form, it’s best to do so manually. It might be slower than using our import and upload tools, but it’s the only method that guarantees that the data you enter into SRDR+ will be correctly saved in the SRDR+ database and integrated into future updates of your systematic reviews.
