Welcome to the Guidelines International Network.  We hope you find our website easy to navigate, as well as informative.  The website facilitates communication, engagement and collaboration with and amongst our members.

The website is here for you, so please use it and give us feedback – we want to hear of ways to make it even better for you.  Members should always login, as there is lots of information just for you!  Please take a look at the Project/Collaboration board where new projects and working groups will seek volunteers, as well as the areas for all of the  working groups and regional communities along with their discussion boards.

What we do

      TaskExchange – bringing the global guidelines and systematic review communities closer

      G-I-N has collaborated with Cochrane on an exciting new release of TaskExchange which was launched on 24 July.  The new platform aims to forge stronger links between the global systematic review and guideline communities, as part of the ongoing Cochrane/G-I-N partnership, first established in 2014 to benefit our members.

      TaskExchange initially launched last year with the aim of connecting people needing help with systematic reviews with those who have the time and skills to help. The platform has now been extended to include guideline-related tasks, with input from the G-I-N Tech Working Group.

      For more info you can visit the TaskExchange website.

       So, what do you need to do? To engage as a poster or responder on TaskExchange, just sign up and create your profile.  You will find the Task Exchange button on your dashboard, beside the Cochrane Library when you login to the G-I-N website.
