Evidence synthesis is a powerful research process that allows researchers to combine and analyse all relevant data from multiple studies and draw conclusions based on the most up-to-date evidence available. The science to synthesize research evidence has developed considerably in recent years. Evidence-based health care has undergone a revolution over two decades. Several global organizations produce, support and use evidence synthesis, including: the Cochrane Collaboration, the Campbell Collaboration, the Health Evidence Network WHO, Evidence Synthesis International, and several others have been preparing high quality summaries of research about the effectiveness of drugs, interventions and health care in general.1 Many policymakers, clinicians and health managers are drawing on these reliable reviews in their decision making. There is increasing trend of scientific publications on health research in Nepal, therefore this is the right time to assess the quality of published articles and evidence synthesis for evidence-informed decision-making.
