How to prepare a Cochrane Review
Cochrane Reviews are prepared by author teams who register titles with one of the 53 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 Trials Search Co-ordinator. The Cochrane Review Groups provide authors with methodological and editorial support to prepare Cochrane Reviews, and manage the editorial process, including peer review.
Authors of registered Cochrane Reviews should contact their Cochrane Review Group for support, information about editorial processes, and information about editorial deadlines. For information on training and resources please visit Cochrane Training.
Authors interested in preparing a Cochrane Review should contact the Cochrane Review Group that covers the area of interest for information about the registration process. Prospective authors should first browse the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews to identify whether the topic of interest is already covered by an ongoing protocol or review.
