Response to Dr Livingstone

Thank you for your kind words on the review.

As regards the "we", this refers to the team who contributed: the
foot soldier (myself); and the support team: the Editorial Board (who were
very active in the review) and the BMJ staff who ran the searches.
However, I
agree with your sentiments on the use of the word "we" entirely and I'm
sure it'll give us food for thought!
