Sample text

A modern model of transparency is the PEL model [5] (Fig. 6). The first element of the PEL model is the list of presuppositions (P), which offers a basic and indispensable image of the system being studied. The presuppositions are important because they enable one to restrict the set of all possible hypotheses, which are infinite, to a limited set. Without constraint, the set of possible hypotheses would be infinite and it would be impossible to reject all the absurd hypotheses and keep the realistic ones, based on the finite quantity of empirical evidence accessible to us.

These need not to be systematic reviews; however, they would provide a general overview of the topic being studied. The case series do not report only illnesses; they might also report on the development of a new intervention or therapy, or adverse effects of these, as in the example shown below. In that report, six cases of infections of the joints following injections in the knee joint are presented [9]. 5 Other Descriptive Studies Some texts include within this type of descriptive studies what are called ecological and surveillance studies [1].
