Evidence Overviews

EviEM Evidence Overviews provide overviews of environmental issues, based on a more limited search of the literature. No general conclusions are drawn.

An EviEM Evidence Overview takes between a couple of weeks and three months to complete. It indicates whether research findings point in the same direction and  whether the question is suitable for systematic review. Knowledge gaps are also identified.

The Evidence Overviews have been peer-reviewed and approved by EviEM’s Executive Committee prior to publication on the EviEM website.
