What is a systematic review?

Systematic reviews ensure that evidence can better inform policy and practice. Reviews examine the existing evidence on a social or economic development intervention or programme in low-and middle-income countries, drawing also on evidence from developed countries when pertinent. 

3ie funded systematic reviews are carried out according to recognised international standards and guidelines. 3ie has partnered with the Campbell Collaboration  to provide training and support to review authors.  Reviews should usually register their protocol with Campbell, or the Cochrane Collaboration, if appropriate.
