Our team is mostly grant funded and comprises experienced information specialists and systematic reviewers. We identify, evaluate and summarise current, reliable evidence and teach systematic review methods.

We provide expert advice and support in the following areas:

  • protocol development and methodologies
  • evidence synthesis
  • search design
  • literature searching
  • training in advanced search strategies, database searching and critical appraisal.

We have contributed to a range of research projects. We also work in the field of methodological innovation, exploring new literature searching techniques and the use of text mining to improve review efficiency.
