CEEDER is a free service provided by CEE because of the contribution of volunteers whom we gratefully acknowledge.

We have several teams of volunteers in charge of the development of CEEDER:

1. the Editorial Team, supervising the process, providing training, making decision about future developments, and liaising with the Board and other CEE teams;

2. The Review College, in charge of assessments of evidence reviews and overviews using the CEESAT tool;

3. The Screening team, in charge of selecting reviews and overviews that are eligible for CEEDER;

4. The Support staff, a group of volunteers in charge of searching the reviews, filling up the spreadsheets and preparing the “rounds” of assessments (4 per year), providing support and tools for the other groups, and helping with the webpages and communication altogether with CEE.

If you are interested in joining any CEEDER team, you can find more information here.
