"PEDro is the Physiotherapy Evidence Database, a free database of over 45,000 randomised trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines in physiotherapy. For each trial, review or guideline, PEDro provides the citation details, the abstract and a link to the full text, where possible. All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality. These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice. PEDro is produced by the Institute for Musculoskeletal Health, School of Public Health at the University of Sydney and is hosted by Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). ERIC is an online library of education research and information, sponsored by the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) of the US Department of Education. It contains over 1.5 million citations to journal articles and other education-related literature. Full text is available for about 25 percent of the citations."

PEDro can now be accessed from our databases page.
