International audience; Background: Systematic reviews are critical for obtaining accurate estimates of diagnostic test accuracy, yet theserequire extracting information buried in free text articles, which is often laborious. Objective: We create a datasetdescribing the data extraction and synthesis processes in 63 DTA systematic reviews, and demonstrate its utility byusing it to replicate the data synthesis in the original reviews.

We evaluate us-ing manual assessment by two annotators and by comparing against data ex...
