Scientific research is often criticised in academic, professional, and public policy circles for being uneven and lacking credibility (Centre for Knowledge Translation for Disability and Rehabilitation Research 2005; Gersten et al. 2000; Shavelson and Towne 2002).

Research about the same issue can vary considerably in its assumptions, methods, and findings (Gough et al. 2013). A lack of overall agreement on a specific set of standards for assessing research quality can add to the confusion, making it more difficult for research users to trust research. A number of groups have been working to bridge this gap through the development of research appraisal tools. For example, the Effective Public Health Practice Project (2009) has established a standardised quality appraisal tool for quantitative studies.
