The CASE database of research evidence is a unique and comprehensive resource for those working in the field of culture and sport. The database currently holds the records of over 5,500 studies on the drivers, impact and value of engagement in culture and sport.
In order to maintain the value of the CASE database, a strategy will be needed to regularly update the database. The update strategy should be informed by the knowledge and experience gained from the search and selection process initially used to populate the CASE database.
‘Updating the CASE database: analysis of original approach’ analyses the original search strategy carried out by the EPPI-Centre to aid and inform the development of the update strategy.
‘Methods used for the CASE database 2012 update’ provides supplementary information on how the CASE database was updated by the EPPI Centre in March 2012.
