NIHR Adding Value in Research: ensuring that all new primary research is set in the context of a review of existing knowledge

As part of the “NIHR at 10” celebrations, I’ve been working with with some of the team from the NIHR Research on Research programme on updating the Adding Value in Research initiatives.

Specifically: “Pillar 2: Appropriate Research Design, Conduct And Analysis”.

The second way to add value in research is to ensure that new research is appropriately designed to reduce potential bias, and is based on what is already known.

We do this through robust and transparent peer and expert review and by ensuring that all new primary research is set in the context of a review of existing knowledge. By seeking all available evidence for a given topic, the appropriate and timely conduct of a systematic review can help researchers and the NIHR design new primary research, or see whether a new study is actually needed.
