What is NeLI?

The NeLI is an online library bringing together the best available evidence-based, quality-tagged resources on the investigation, treatment, prevention and control of infectious disease. Neli is partially funded under the 6th Framework Programme by the European Commission. A key benefit of the NeLI are the reviewer's assessments attached to documents within the library. These are written by professionals in the field and provide a short summary of what the document is about and highlight any studies that contradict, potential bias or conflicts of interest. Each review is signed by the reviewer and may be commented on by registered users. To find out more about reviewing documents in NeLI please visit our contribute section.
