Support for research

We provide a range of services to help you, including:

  • Carrying out literature searches on your behalf
  • Providing support for systematic reviews, such as designing search strategies, advice on databases, and advice on storing and screening references
  • The Literature Search Process: Guidance for NHS Researchers
    The literature search protocols have been developed by health librarians in close partnership with the Thames Valley Research & Development Network. Their aim is to support healthcare researchers in carrying out effective literature searches according to an agreed set of recommendations. This will help ensure that research is not duplicated and that literature searches retrieve the best available evidence.
  • This special issue of EBLIP contains numerous articles to help with the specifics of carrying out a literature search, such as critical appraisal and altmetrics.
  • Provision of a range of books related to research, statistics, and writing for publication
  • Obtaining articles, books or other material from elsewhere
  • Providing information skills training, including critical appraisal skills and searching healthcare databases

If you’re looking for previously published research, you could try searching a healthcare database.

Alternatively, you could use the evidence page to find previously published systematic reviews or randomised controlled trials.
