In network meta-analyses, visualisation of all the available evidence and interpretation of findings can be challenging, especially with networks of many treatments. NMAstudio is an open-source web application that facilitates the production and visualisation of NMA outputs in a fully interactive environment, providing easy ‘point-and-click’ interactions between the outputs and a network diagram. The software is fully built in Python but the R package netmeta is used to produce the analyses. Currently, the main features provided are: (a) boxplots of effect modifiers for the evaluation of transitivity; (b) pairwise or NMA forest plots and bi-dimensional plots for two outcomes; (c) league tables coloured by risk of bias or confidence ratings from CINeMA; (d) inconsistency tests and comparison-adjusted funnel plots for small-study effects; (e) ranking plots; (f) evolution of the network over time. All plots and tables are customisable and downloadable.
