Information Specialists


The Information Specialists offer expert advice services and support health research projects and proposal development. We have expertise in literature searching and reference management for systematic reviews, evidence syntheses, economic evaluations, health technology assessments and scoping studies.

We follow evidence-based guidance for search methods from the Cochrane Collaboration, the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, EPPI-Centre and published literature. Our literature searches are peer-reviewed to maintain a high quality output.

We support staff within Leeds Institute of Health Science but also work with colleagues in other Institutes, Schools and Faculties across the University on health and multidisciplinary projects. Through the Research Design Service we work with a variety of other institutions and agencies, see the RDS service for further information.
