Methods and tools

Developing research methods is central to the EPPI-Centre’s work. The following areas of the website provide resources for people interested in the mechanics of systematic research synthesis:

Methods - The methods document provides a brief description of the methods used at each stage of a systematic review. However, as this is quite an old document (at least six years old), we recommend instead our book on systematic reviewing:

Gough D, Oliver S, Thomas J (2012) An Introduction to Systematic Reviews. London: Sage


Tools - The tools page provides information and links to various data coding and management tools and guidelines.

Databases - The EPPI-Centre provides and is involved in supporting a number of databases containing primary research studies and evidence reviews, many of which have been used in EPPI-Centre systematic reviews
