Trip is well known for being easy to use. However, that doesn’t mean people don’t need a bit of ‘on boarding’ to help them get to grips with the site. To this end we’ve created two videos to help. The first, less than three minutes long, is a high-level take on Trip and should be enough to get people well versed in the basics. The second is longer and covers more ground.

  • An introduction to the Trip Database – covers the philosophy of Trip, basic searching, an overview of the results page, the use of colours and the evidence pyramid and how to restrict your search to specific evidence types e.g. systematic review or clinical guidelines.
  • Part 2: An introduction to the Trip Database – covers a brief history of Trip, the difference between ‘free’ and ‘Pro’, PICO and advanced searches, explaining results icons, exporting results and registering on Trip.

We hope you find them useful.

Remember, if you need additional help using Trip then reach out to us via, it may be for a specific query or possibly suggestions a new video topic.
