• Step 6: Review information gathered in second phase

To evaluate the usefulness of the second phase of the search, review the relevant literature in full rather than just abstracts. This is recommended because often the information relating to Three Rs alternatives is found in the methods section of articles, not abstracts. To assist in deciding if your search is finished, it may be useful to consider some or all of the Questions to assess whether your Three Rs search is complete.
