These exploratory reviews can lead to a greater understanding of the nature of the evidence on a topic over time and generate hypotheses for future research. PCORI commissions scoping reviews to identify and map the available evidence on a topic to inform future evidence synthesis and comparative clinical effectiveness research (CER) initiatives.
