Systematic Reviews in Progress

Registered JBI Reviews 

In addition to it's own work at the Queen's University School of Nursing, the Queen's Collaboration for Health Care Quality provides mentoring for submissions from Dalhousie University, Memorial University of Newfoundland, the University of Victoria, University of Manitoba, Brandon University, University of Ottawa, and several other Canadian health organizations. QcHcQ has provided methodological support to over 35 review teams across Canada. 

New SR Titles and research questions registered with JBI are posted on their website. JBI also maintains a list of identified review topics.

Recent Canadian authored JBI Protocols ​are listed below. These review teams are busy working on their Reports at this time. In May 2016, JBI moved its journal, JBI Systematic Reviews and Implementation Reports (JBISRIR) to a new publishing platform managed by Wolters Kluwer Lippincott.
