Read for the Registry

Help Keep Our Databases Up To Date

Our reviewers carefully audit and collect information from published cost-effectiveness articles. With the increasing popularity of CEAs, we are always looking for qualified reviewers to help us maintain the timeliness and accuracy of our database.

CEVR Reading Programs

Regular Reading
Regular reviewers read from six to 12 articles every four weeks, as mutually agreed upon by the reviewer and the coordinator. Reviewers participate remotely.

Summer CEA Registry Internship
Our paid CEA Registry internship lasts eight weeks during the summer and involves reading approximately 20 CEA articles a week, conducting consensus with a partner, and attending lectures provided by our CEVR faculty. Applications for this position open mid-January and close around mid-March.


  • Each reviewer individually reads articles and fills out data collection forms.
  • To ensure data reliability and validity, each article is reviewed by two readers
  • The two reviewers for each article discuss the information they have collected and achieve a consensus. The consensus meeting may occur in person or by phone.


Our reviewers have an important role in sustaining our database. If you are interested in becoming one of our reviewers, you should:

  • Have taken cost-effectiveness-related graduate-level coursework.
  • Be familiar with cost-effectiveness analysis techniques.
  • Have good communication and critical reading skills.
  • Work in a timely manner.


Each reader is compensated $25 per on-time, acceptable, completed article (Readers may judge some articles as ineligible for inclusion in the Registry). Each article takes approximately one hour, though review times vary by reviewer or complexity of article. For non-U.S. citizens, a valid visa is required. Volunteers are also welcome.
