Evidence and literature reviews
Carrying out a review of existing evidence and literature is the most effective way of establishing what’s already known about what works, who it works for, and in what context.
By using existing sources of knowledge, you can then critically consider this evidence before you develop new policies or actions.
Our evidence and literature reviews work includes:
- full systematic literature reviews
- Rapid Evidence Assessments
- literature, database, web and social media searches
- expertise in synthesising results and presenting findings
- outputs tailored to your own audience, in terms of length and level of detail
We use a range of approaches to identify and assess existing evidence and literature, and work flexibly with you to meet your exact needs. And if you need quick answers, a Rapid Evidence Assessment will provide robust results, fast.
To get the best results from our reviews, we’ll first identify a long list of evidence and literature, which we screen for relevance, only using and interpreting the most robust evidence.
