It is the aim of SGRP to resume annual searches, update the database, address issues of missing and inconsistent data and consider 'grey' literature reports. Anyone able to regularly search a journal in their area and/or be able to supply bibliographic references to complete gaps in the Bibliography should contact the Bibliography Editor via the Group's website.
