The American Journal of Primatology has just published Comprehensive search filters for retrieving publications on nonhuman primates for literature reviews (filterNHP).
Per authors Lauren C. Cassidy et al, “Nonhuman primates (NHPs) are widely studied across many scientific disciplines using a variety of techniques in diverse environments. Due to the wide scope of NHP research, substantial overlap in research topics and questions can occur, whose resulting scientific evidence is synthesized by literature reviews. Identifying all relevant research on a particular topic involving NHPs can be difficult and time consuming. By adopting objective search development techniques from systematic reviews, we developed search filters to detect all scientific publications involving NHPs in PubMed, PsycINFO (via EBSCOhost), and Web of Science.”https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ajp.23287?campaign=wolearlyview
