With over three quarter of a million article accesses annually, Systematic Reviews is one of the world’s leading journals in applied methodology. We publish evidence syntheses in clinical, pre-clinical and other health-related fields and associated methodology.  This spans the growing range of review types and we accept full systematic, rapid, scoping and realist reviews regardless of significance of findings, providing that they are methodologically rigorous. Our esteemed Editorial Board welcomes submissions of review results, protocols and articles and commentaries on review methodology across this range.
