Description

Trip focuses on evidence based content to answer clinical health care questions.   The easy interface appeals to users with little time or less experience in literature searching.  Basic content draws from systematic reviews, controlled trials and content from PubMed, key primary research journals, clinical guidelines, and regulatory guidance.  The free version offers a basic search with drop-down suggestions and filtering options, as well as a PICO search.  Results may be ordered by quality, date, relevance and popularity.   Free registration via sign up, Facebook, Twitter, or Google offers added features such as highlighting documents for later review (starring) and email alerts.  During registration users are also asked to add terms of interest.  Search translation is offered in six other languages.

Trip Pro (fee subscription required) offers an advanced search, a "recent" button to retrieve previous activity, and access to images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses, and much more content.  The paid version also has access to References may be exported for citation management purposes (email, CSV and RIS).  

TRIP stood for Turning Research into Practice on startup, but now is simply "Trip".
