The Behaviour Change Intervention Ontology (BCIO) is an ontology for representing information about behaviour change interventions and studies to evaluate them. It aims to cover all entities that may be referred to in research reports in this domain.

BCIO Search is for searching and browsing the BCIO. It can be used to identify terms and constructs to be used in research protocols and study reports to maximise clarity and coordination across papers. It links with the Qeios publishing platform on which entities that have passed through an initial checking process are published and receive doi numbers. These entities can be referenced using standard bibliographic software. Users are invited to comment on and propose entities directly to the study team using the contact facility.
