ECEBM, an academic independent research center, produces and disseminates systematic reviews of research evidence in health care. We develop evidence-based guideline and support evidence-informed policy making.

Our Mission is to create valid knowledge and promote its utilization in making well informed decisions in health care.

ECEBM provides training to strengthen research capacity including one-on-one mentoring in systematic reviews and meta-analysis, network meta-analysis, GRADE, development of clinical practice guidelines, and clinical research methods.

BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We do not make editorial decisions on the basis of the interest of a study or its likely impact. Studies must be scientifically valid; for research articles this includes a scientifically sound research question, the use of suitable methods and analysis, and following community-agreed standards relevant to the research field (2017-current).
