Cochrane Review Groups

The Cochrane Reviews in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews are prepared by authors who register titles with one of 52 Cochrane Review Groups. Each Cochrane Review Group focuses on a specific topic area and is led by a Co-ordinating Editor(s) and an editorial team including a Managing Editor and an Information Specialist. The Cochrane Review Groups provide authors with methodological and editorial support to prepare Cochrane Reviews, and manage the editorial process, including peer review.

The Co-ordinating Editors form the Editorial Board for the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.

All Co-ordinating Editors and other Cochrane Review Group staff and editors have made declarations of conflicts of interest.
