Revised criteria for key tools

In a working meeting in March 2024, the leadership group decided to drop one criterion used to identify key tools in the library.

The criterion “Used in at least one review that none of the tool authors were co-authors on or is an update to a previously recommended LATITUDES key tool” was dropped as there was some overlap to a criterion applied earlier (“Developed for use by the wider research community…”) and did not help to discriminate between tools. In addition, it was time-consuming to assess.

The criteria for inclusion in the LATITUDES library and identifying key tools (indicated with a red rosette symbol) as well as information on the process for identifying tools can be found here.
