We offer both short-term and long-term individual consultancy (see below) on high-quality research methods, e.g. searching for, evaluating, and synthesizing research evidence. We can guide researchers in: 

Our consultancy services are free of charge for:

  • PhD students and other researchers from the Department of Clinical Research at SDU or from Odense University Hospital
  • researchers based in Denmark who are preparing a Cochrane Review

Other researchers are welcome to contact us for a special arrangement (depending on availability).

Short-term consultancy

A short-term consultancy consists of a one-time consultation in reviews (or other kinds of clinical research), maximum 1 hour including preparation. The service will generally be useful for PhD students or researchers with one or several relatively concrete questions that need clarification. 

Long-term consultancy

The long-term consultancy consists of up to a total of 10 hours (including preparation) of consultations. Generally, the long-term service will be a continuous process where a methods consultant from our centre will provide guidance throughout the course of a research project. 

Application to our consultancy service

An application for our short-term or long-term services for preparing reviews (or other studies) should be sent to our email: and should contain:

  1. A brief outline of the review’s research question, if possible in PICO format (clarification of patient population, intervention, control and outcome) or in the form of a protocol
  2. Information about the research group undertaking the review
  3. Prior experience with preparing reviews
