The Brazilian Reproducibility Initiative in preclinical Systematic review and meta-Analysis is a collaborative initiative to foster the development of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in basic biomedical science.
The group emerged from the Brazilian Reproducibility Initiative (http://reprodutibilidade.bio.br) and currently consists of a network of more than 30 researchers across the country. We conduct training and coordinate the development of preclinical systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
The BRISA collaboration
Who we are
The BRISA (Brazilian Reproducibility Initiative in Preclinical Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis) collaboration is an initiative to foster the development of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in basic biomedical science.
A brief history
The group emerged from the Brazilian Reproducibility Initiative as a way to cater to the needs of basic researchers interested in carrying out systematic reviews, but without the expertise to do so individually.
What we do
We coordinate and manage the development of systematic reviews and preclinical meta-analyses on topics decided by our community. We are also currently developing an online training program for researchers interested in performing such studies.
Becoming a permanent network that can support the development of systematic reviews and meta-analyses in basic science by Brazilian researchers.
How to participate
BRISA opens up annual calls for new members, and can eventually include ad hoc collaborators at other times. New members are expected to undergo our training program, unless they possess previous experience in systematic reviews.
Follow our social media to know about future calls for members.
What a member does
BRISA members are expected to take part in one or more systematic review projects, and can propose the development of new projects. They must also participate in our meetings, which happen on a monthly basis.
How does BRISA communicate
Our meetings take place periodically in online appointments, including the whole group (general meetings) or working groups (relative to projects under development or to specific tasks such as training or research on systematic reviews). We also have a Slack channel for asynchronous communication.
