Introducing: EPPI-Reviewer Web

EPPI-Reviewer Web is a new web-based version of EPPI-Reviewer that provides an alternative interface to many common functionalities available in EPPI-Reviewer 4.

It works in all modern web browsers and no longer requires the Silverlight plugin so it can be used on different devices such as desktops, laptops and tablets. Since it operates on the same data as EPPI-Reviewer 4, you can work on the same review using either application.

You can access the application here: https://eppi.ioe.ac.uk/eppireviewer-web/home

Although we are continuously adding more functionality to this version you may still need to use the older Silverlight application for some functions, at least until they are added to the new version.
