Campbell mission statement:

The Campbell Collaboration promotes positive social and economic change through the production and use of systematic reviews and other evidence synthesis for evidence-based policy and practice.

Campbell bases its work on 10 key principles:

  1. Collaboration, by internally and externally fostering good communications, open decision-making and teamwork.
  2. Building on the enthusiasm of individuals, by involving and supporting people of different skills and backgrounds.
  3. Avoiding duplication, by good management and co-ordination to ensure economy of effort.
  4. Minimizing bias, through a variety of approaches such as scientific rigour, ensuring broad participation, and avoiding conflicts of interest.
  5. Keeping up to date, by a commitment to ensure that Campbell reviews are maintained through identification and incorporation of new evidence.
  6. Striving for relevance, by promoting the assessment of policies and practices using outcomes that matter to people.
  7. Promoting access, by wide dissemination of the outputs of the collaboration, taking advantage of strategic alliances, and by promoting appropriate prices, content and media to meet the needs of users worldwide.
  8. Ensuring quality, by being open and responsive to criticism, applying advances in methodology, and developing systems for quality improvement.
  9. Continuity, by ensuring that responsibility for reviews, editorial processes and key functions is maintained and renewed.
  10. Enabling wide participation in the work of the collaboration, by reducing barriers to contributing and by encouraging diversity.
