Our literature search service can help you find articles, identify relevant databases, refine your search strategy, and more. This service is available to everyone on the UW-Madison campus, UW Health staff, and state of Wisconsin residents, including community members. See our Introduction to Literature Searching guide for more information on how to get started with your research project.


Our systematic and scoping review services range from consulting on the review process to being an active member of the research team and co-author. This service is primarily for current UW-Madison faculty and staff in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Nursing, and Pharmacy, and UW Health staff. See our Systematic Reviews guide for more information on the systematic review process.
