Searching for Systematic Reviews
In PubMed you can find SRs by searching in the Clinical Queries search or by adding AND systematic[sb] to your search in the main search box, e.g. (otitis media AND systematic [sb])
TRIP Database PRO
Limit your search to SRs in TRIP by using the filter in the right menu on the search results page.
AHRQ SRs are searchable from their research website as EPC Evidence-Based Reports - these are government publications and are not published in journal articles. See also the AHRQ Systematic Review Data Repository https://srdr.ahrq.gov/projects/published
Cochrane Library (EBP Reviews OVID)
The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews is accessible through the OVID interface.
JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports
Joanna Briggs Institute SRs are available through our UC affiliate access click here to view.

Organizations Producing Systematic Reviews
Our mission is to promote evidence-informed health decision-making by producing high-quality, relevant, accessible systematic reviews and other synthesized research evidence.
The Campbell Collaboration promotes positive social and economic change through the production and use of systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis for evidence-based policy and practice.-- our mission statement
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
AHRQ invests in research and evidence to make health care safer and improve quality.
Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (University of York)
CRD is a research department that specialises in evidence synthesis, assembling and analysing data from multiple research studies to generate policy relevant research. We undertake high quality systematic reviews and associated economic evaluations, develop underpinning methods, and promote and facilitate the use of research evidence in decision-making.
Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) Collaboration
The Best Evidence Medical Education (BEME) Collaboration (Harden et al., 1999) is an international group of individuals, universities and professional organisations committed to the development of evidence informed education in the medical and health professions through:
the dissemination of information which allows teachers and stakeholders in the medical and health professions to make decisions on the basis of the best evidence available;
the production of reviews which present the best available evidence and meet the needs of the user; and
the creation of a culture of best evidence education amongst individuals, institutions and national bodies.
Joanna Briggs Institute
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is the "international not-for-profit, research and development Centre within the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medical at the University of Adelaide, South Australia." Free access is given to some systematic reviews in the JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports.
The EPPI-Centre is a specialist centre for: (i) developing methods for systematic reviewing and synthesis of research evidence; and (ii) developing methods for the study of the use research.
Cochrane Review Groups and Networks
The Cochrane Reviews in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews are prepared by authors who register titles with one of the Cochrane Review Groups. Each Cochrane Review Group focuses on a specific topic area and is led by a Co-ordinating Editor(s) and an editorial team, including a Managing Editor and an Information Specialist. The Cochrane Review Groups provide authors with methodological and editorial support to prepare Cochrane Reviews, and manage the editorial process, including peer review.
All Co-ordinating Editors and other Cochrane Review Group staff and editors have made declarations of conflicts of interest.
Cochrane Review Groups are members of one of eight Networks, which are responsible for the efficient and timely production of high-quality systematic reviews that address the most important research questions for decision makers.
Systematic Review Journal
Systematic Reviews encompasses all aspects of the design, conduct and reporting of systematic reviews. This open access journal publishes high quality systematic review products including systematic review protocols, systematic reviews related to a very broad definition of health, rapid reviews, updates of already completed systematic reviews, and methods research related to the science of systematic reviews, such as decision modelling. At this time Systematic Reviews does not accept reviews of in vitro studies. The journal also aims to ensure that the results of all well-conducted systematic reviews are published, regardless of their outcome.
