Browser support: if the site does not look good on your browser/phone etc...

The e-Guide currently supports “modern” browsers, including Internet Explorer 9+, Google Chrome & Firefox. Standard browsers for Android & iOS mobile devices are also supported. We are working on adding full support for Internet Explorer 8 and (possibly) Internet Explorer 7, according to need.
At present the e-Guide is designed primarily to work on desktop computers and tablets. Algorithms should be visible on mobile phones, but the site is not specifically optimized for these at present.

Can I use the e-Guide offline? Is the e-Guide available as a mobile app?

The e-Guide is currently only available online. However we are looking to develop an offline version and/or mobile app in the future.

How do I log-in to the e-Guide?

As of February 2015, the ECCO e-Guide is now open access. You do not need to be an ECCO member to access the e-Guide.

I have a great idea for improving the e-Guide. Who do I tell?

What are the sources of information used in the e-Guide?

The e-Guide is based on the ECCO Consensus Guidelines, as well as on original studies referenced in the guidelines. While we have always aimed to base content on the guidelines, there is inevitably some degree of expert interpretation required and details of the contributor team can be found on the About page. The latest ECCO statements (currently 2014) are used except where specified.

Who developed the e-Guide?

The development of the e-Guide was led by Dr Marcus Harbord. The full list of contributors can be found on the About page.
The e-Guide web platform was developed by Sociable Data, who support the e-CCO e-Guide by means of an educational grant.
