We frequently receive requests for free access for conferences/workshops – we’re always happy to oblige. It looks like we’ve received our last request before going ‘free’. The Evidence-Based Health Care Workshop in Colorado has asked for free access. Bad timing as they want access from 31st July to 30th August. People attending the conference will get acquainted with the subscription version. Then, the next day (31st August) TRIP will move to free-access as well as having an overhaul of how the search system works!

We’re currently waiting to receive the beta-version of the ‘new’ free TRIP – should be within the next week. Assuming there is nothing too badly wrong with it we’ll go free as of 31st August. Why the 31st? Our web c0mpany doesn’t like launching new sites on a Friday (which is the 1st September). Therefore, the free version will go live in the evening (UK time) on the 31st August – the Thursday!
