MAGIC authoring and publication platform (MAGICapp) - for guidelines and evidence summaries - is developed through our research and innovation program.

The platform allows authors to write and publish their guidelines and evidence summaries in a highly structured fashion, using the GRADE methodology, new technology and a host of recent developed frameworks. MAGICapp is a web based collaborative tool that does not require any software installation and allows publication on all devices.

All researchers in MAGIC are practicing physicians devoted to evidence-based medicine and clinical epidemiology. We are also members of the GRADE working group and know from first hand experience that writing a guideline is a complex task and that many struggle with the methodology and the processes around.

MAGICapp includes features to guide you through the process of writing and publishing a guideline. A lot of research and effort has gone into improving the user interface of the platform – both for authors and readers.
