We can carry out a search for key literature on a topic for you, or find evidence to answer a research question. If you plan to use the search results for academic study, we offer guided search sessions using your chosen topic instead.

Use the online form below to request a search.

Reason for requesting the search (please select from list) Required
Latest date by which you need the search results - [Ideally at least 1 week from date of request.] Required
Do you require a summary (synthesis) of key results? [This will take longer than a standard search] Required
