Following the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck central Italy on 24 August, 2016, access to the Cochrane Library was made free for 60 days for anyone accessing from an IP address within the Lazio region of Italy.

If you would like to use an appraisal framework when considering the relevance and quality of the full reviews that Evidence Aid links to, a few useful tools are: AMSTARCASP and ROBIS. Guidance is also available on reporting reviews: PRISMA.

Useful articles relating specifically to the response to the Italian earthquake (in Italian):
