First issue of Campbell Systematic Reviews journal published

John Wiley and Sons Inc. and the Campbell Collaboration are pleased to announce that the first issue of the journal Campbell Systematic Reviews is now available on Wiley Online Library.

Campbell Systematic Reviews is an open access journal which publishes systematic reviews, evidence and gap maps, and methods research papers.

The first issue is a double issue and includes seven systematic reviews and 14 protocols for systematic reviews and evidence and gap maps. In the editorial for the issue, Campbell’s Editor in Chief Vivian Welch discusses the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) of research, which are central to ensuring reproducibility, transparency, and accountability in science.

Campbell is the pre-eminent international network publishing high quality, transparent, reliable and policy-relevant evidence syntheses and maps in the social sectors to promote positive social and economic change by enabling evidence-based policy and practice.

Announcing the partnership in February, Arash Hejazi, Editorial Director at Wiley commented that "The Campbell Collaboration has introduced a unique initiative to influence social and economic change. It has created a great example for social sciences to embrace the true spirit of open research and to publicly share studies that offer rigour and reproducibility. We cannot be more delighted to be their partner in this journey, as these goals are also at the heart of Wiley’s strategy."

Howard White, the Chief Executive Officer of the Campbell Collaboration, said, "Campbell has always been a mark of the highest quality in academic standards. Our agreement with Wiley, a major publisher in the evaluation field, reinforces that reputation and will help us achieve our planned expansion of the scope and number of reviews and maps we publish."

The Campbell Collaboration Editorial Board consists of global academic leaders in systematic review methods and training,  Business and Management, Crime and Justice, Disability, Education, International Development, Knowledge Translation and Implementation, and Social Welfare.
