Have authors’ provided the necessary ethics approval (from authors’ institution or an ethics committee)?
How would you rate the English language quality?
Validity and Reproducibility
Is the reasons for conducting the study and its objectives clearly explained?
Is the study design appropriate?
Are sufficient details provided so that the method can be replicated?
Are datasets available so that others could use them?
Based on your answers in section 3 how could the author improve the protocol?
There is a more specific definition of PASC that should be included (with a reference). There is a need to list specific medical databases to search and not just mention “various” . PECO criteria need to be listed and not only implied that they will be used.
Do you have any other suggestions, feedback, or comments for the Author?
The GRADE approach will be useful, as is mentioned along with a narrative synthesis if needed. Strengths and limitations seem accurate and are good to list.
Verified with reservations: The content is scientifically sound but has shortcomings that could be improved by further studies and minor revisions.
