The EURL ECVAM search guide
Good search practice on animal alternatives
Encouraged by the success of the first edition in 2012 the Joint Research Centre has re-published an entirely updated second version of the EURL ECVAM Search Guide. The Guide has specifically been developed to support untrained database users in finding high quality information on relevant alternative strategies and methods to animal experiments from the wide range of sources available on the web. The Guide provides examples of search procedures, suggested search terms and user guidance. It includes descriptions of relevant resources and thesauri. A check list is moreover offered (the seven... golden steps) to allow for searches in a structured and systematic way and to document them - a fundamental step in preparing a research project in biomedical sciences and toxicology. Target users are scientists, national authorities involved in animal protection and ethical committees verifying that all possible alternatives have been considered before conducting animal experiments.
