About This Site

EvidenceAlerts is a continuously updated repository of current best evidence from research to support evidence-based clinical decisions.

All articles from 125 premier clinical journals are pre-rated for quality by highly trained research staff, then rated for clinical relevance and interest by at least 3 members of a worldwide panel of practicing physicians. Only the strongest studies and systematic reviews are selected for EvidenceAlerts; less than 1 in 10 published articles makes the grade.

EvidenceAlerts does not cover basic science, and is providing clinically relevant new evidence to practicing physicians more than a comprehensive literature database for researchers.
