Abstract

Evidence mapping describes the quantity, design and characteristics of research in broad topic areas, in contrast to systematic reviews, which usually address narrowly-focused research questions. The breadth of evidence mapping helps to identify evidence gaps, and may guide future research efforts. The Global Evidence Mapping Initiative was established in 2007 to create evidence maps providing an overview of existing research in Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury.
