The Campbell Collaboration
The Campbell Collaboration is an international, voluntary, non-profit research network that publishes systematic reviews. Our Campbell Reviews summarise and evaluate the quality of evidence about programmes in social and behavioural sciences. Our aim is to help people make better choices and better policy decisions.
Campbell UK & Ireland
Campbell UK & Ireland is a national centre of the Campbell Collaboration. It's role is to promote the work of the Campbell Collaboration across the UK and Ireland. The primary focus of this work is to encourage the greater production and use of Campbell Reviews nationally.
Campbell UK & Ireland will achieve this through: supporting training and research capacity building in relation to systematic review methods; seeking funding to support research teams in the UK and Ireland undertake Campbell Reviews; and making strategic connections with research organisations, universities, NGOs and local and national governments across the islands to encourage the greater use of Campbell Reviews and promote a stronger focus on evidence-informed decision making.
Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation
Campbell UK & Ireland has been established and is currently hosted by the Centre for Evidence and Social Innovation (CESI) at Queen's University Belfast. CESI is a large, interdisciplinary research centre that draws together over 100 academic and research staff across Queen's including: education, social work, nursing and midwifery, psychology, economics, public health and medicine.
