Since systematic reviews represent a significant time investment, researchers often apply for funding to support extra working hours or to hire additional help in reviewing articles. Researchers may also use funds to purchase software such as Covidence, which streamlines the article review process.
The WSU Office of Research provides resources to researchers to help them discover appropriate funding avenues. One such resource is Pivot, a database of funding opportunities matched to your area of research.
The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation provides funding for systematic reviews that examine the existing evidence on a particular intervention or program in low- amd middle-income countries.
The Campbell Collaboration provides grants for systematic reviews up to $40,000.
