How are the fictional data collected?

In this fictional evidence map project, the data are collected through a Google Form similar to the one below. Article screeners assisting with the project fill in title, effect sizes, Pubmed citation counts, and Google search results counts. The data are added to a spreadsheet which is updated in real time as evidence is screened.
