Welcome to the LATITUDES Network

Welcome to the LATITUDES Network. We are excited to launch the LATITUDES Website at Cochrane 2023.


We have established the LATITUDES Network to increase the robustness of evidence synthesis by improving the process of risk of bias/validity assessment.

The main feature of LATITUDES is our searchable library of validity assessment tools designed for use in evidence syntheses.

The website also provides access to training on the process of validity assessment.  We are still working on establishing the website and so we expect to add more tools, training links and other useful resources in the coming weeks.

How to get involved

You can get involved with LATITUDES by suggesting tools for inclusion and by sharing any relevant links you have to training that we could link to.  We’d also welcome offers of help in identifying and screening tools.  To suggest a tool you can complete this form, for all other enquiries please e-mail us.
