Respect the community

The Evidence Base® encourages interaction and discussion within the community to develop this innovative and important field. If you disagree with another member of the network, feel free to say so, but please provide constructive criticism and remain respectful with your comments. Users who insult or harass other members will not be tolerated.


The best way to encourage others to read your content is to participate in the community. You should also read/watch and comment on or share other people’s posts, follow people and follow channels related to your interests, to increase your site activity and get noticed.

The purpose of the network is to drive engagement and the dissemination of knowledge, so no matter your discipline or degree, every voice matters: discussion and debate is what will help propel this revolutionary field further forward.

No disruption

Please do not send unsolicited mass messages, post unauthorized commercial content, etc. Spamming detracts from the user experience, and we want our real-world evidence community to enjoy using the network.

Permission & sensitivity

Is that content yours? Please make sure that you have permission – if necessary – to use any content that you have not generated yourself. When using information from elsewhere please cite the source. Also, take care when discussing blinded trials in progress or case reports – we don’t want to risk compromising trial success or patient identity!


Violations of any of our guidelines may lead to the removal of your content and/or account on The Evidence Base. If you wish to report a violation, please contact the Editor at


This is your community! Each and every user of The Evidence Base makes the site what it is, so don't be afraid to get involved.
