Sharing search strategies for better evidence synthesis


searchRxiv (pronounced “search archive”) has been established to support researchers to report, store and share their searches consistently and to enable them to review and re-use existing searches.

In any discipline a well-constructed search strategy is at the core of evidence-based research, enabling the comprehensive retrieval of eligible studies to be assessed for relevance, and ensuring that no existing research which may be relevant is missed.

Advisory board

The searchRxiv Advisory Board is led by Neal R. Haddaway, Stockholm Environment Institute and Melissa Rethlefsen, HSLIC, University of New Mexico.
