A new network to promote evidence-based research

The text below is forwarded from the EQUATOR network.

As Iain Chalmers and colleagues have been saying for many years, to embark on research without reviewing systematically evidence of what is already known, particularly when the research involves people or animals, is unethical, unscientific, and wasteful. On 3 December 2014, following the Evidence-Based Research meeting in Bergen, Norway, an international Evidence-Based Research (EBR) Network will be inaugurated (http://www.ebrnetwork.org/) to press funders, regulators, researchers, academic institutions, and journals to implement the changes that are needed to promote evidence-based research. One of the key objectives of the EBR Network is that all doctoral students, supervisors, and senior researchers should learn the methodology of systematic reviews and use these research syntheses to anchor more effectively questions for additional primary research.
