4.9.1  RevMan plots and graphs

Forest plots and funnel plots from among those in the ‘Data and analyses’ may be selected as figures. Graphical representations of judgements on risk of bias can also be generated within RevMan and included as figures. Finally, flow diagrams can be generated within RevMan (version 5.1 onwards) to describe the flow of records and studies through the review. There are two types of these flow diagrams. The first follows exactly the PRISMA template and its structure cannot be altered; the second is a flexible tool for creating a specific structure of flow diagram.
