The Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine at Nottingham University (U.K.) has developed VetSRev – a database of veterinary systematic reviews. The group at Nottingham curates newly released veterinary systematic reviews using the open-source refbase software for managing the scientific literature and citations.
After searching for systematic reviews of interest to you, use the AMSTAR (Assessing the Methodlogical Quality of Systematic Reviews) checklist to evaluate the quality and applicability of the review to your own research or clinical question.
For an excellent series of articles on veterinary systematic reviews, see the Special Issue: Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis in Animal Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, published in the June 2014 edition of Zoonoses and Public Health (Volume 61, Issue Supplement S1, Pages 1–63) and authored by Dr. Jan Sargeant, Dr. Annette O’Connor and others. Also see a series of superb tutorials and other resources at SYREAF (Systematic Reviews For Animals and Food).
