The JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports

The JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports is a refereed online journal that publishes systematic review protocols and systematic reviews of healthcare research following the JBI methodology and undertaken by the Joanna Briggs Institute and its international collaborating centres and groups. These reviews may be of quantitative or qualitative research data, text and/or opinion, relate to economic data or combinations of the above. The JBI Database of Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports also publishes the Institute's implementation reports that present the findings of projects that seek to implement the best available evidence into practice.



Summary of Findings Tables

New guidance for including Summary of Findings tables in JBI systematic reviews is now available. Please visit our website or click here to download the guidance. While it is not currently compulsory to include a Summary of Findings table in a JBI review, we do hope that reviewers embrace this methodology and look forward to more systematic reviews including these in the future.
