The Campbell Collaboration
The Campbell Collaboration (named after Donald Campbell, an American psychologist and thinker) is a sibling organisation to The Cochrane Collaboration which prepares, maintains and promotes the accessibility of systematic reviews in areas such as education, criminal justice, social policy and social care.
An exploratory meeting convened under the aegis of the School of Public Policy at University College London was held in London in July 1999. The meeting was attended by several contributors to The Cochrane Collaboration, and resulted in the establishment of an international steering group for the Campbell Collaboration.
At Cochrane-Campbell meetings at the Rome Colloquium, support in principle was expressed for joint Cochrane-Campbell Methods Groups.
