How to create a data extraction form
Data extraction forms are useful to extract the data from the selected studies, as you read them, so you can put all the results together and analyze afterwards.
You can create a data extraction form for your review at Review » Planning Tab » Data Extraction Form.
A data extraction form is basically composed by a collection of fields, each field has a name and a type property, and if this field is a selectable field, it may have some pre-defined values. All the field types are listed below:
|Boolean Field||True or False|
|Float Field||e.g. 10.4 or 176.23|
|Integer Field||e.g. 1 or 40|
|Date Field||Format mm/dd/yyyy|
|Select One Field||List of pre-defined items to select one value (combo box, dropdown list)|
|Select Many Field||List of pre-defined items to select many values (collection of checkboxes)|
You can create forms with unlimited number of fields. For the sake of simplicity you can create all your form fields as string, but the field types can help you keep the integrity of the data, as Parsifal will validate them for you as you fill the form.
