    I just finished reading all 7 ebooks in Series 1. JBI plans to issue another 7 ebooks as part of Series 2 next year and I’m excited to see the titles. The books associated with Series 1 provide the theoretical and philosophical foundations to the JBI approach and systematic reviews. Additionally, each ebook is loaded with clinically relevant information regarding how to search the literature and other useful tips that are customized and aligned with the book’s focus. The qualitative book, for instance, provides philosophical and methodological background on different qualitative approaches, while the diagnostic and quantitative books discuss the reporting standards associated with those types of systematic reviews. If you are interested in systematic reviews, JBI, and/or evidence-based practice, these ebooks are a must-read!
