Summaries integrate the best available evidence to provide a range of evidence about management options for a given health problem.
Evidence Syntheses, such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses, support clinical decision-making by summarizing the available evidence on a clinical topic through a formal search and appraisal of the primary research.
Synopses of Studies are evidence-based abstracts of primary studies.
Clinical studies are primary reports of specific clinical studies. These bibliographic databases also include review articles, expert opinion, in vitro and comarative studies.
