Centre for Information and Reviews
Literature reviews offer a cost effective method of distilling a vast amount of information into a synthesis of the best and most relevant evidence that can inform both policy decisions and practice.
NFER has a long-established record of specialist expertise in literature reviews, supported by the expert staff in the Centre for Information and Reviews with access to a vast amount of national and international literature.
