Doing a Cochrane Review can seem like a daunting task, but Cochrane provides extensive support and guidance for authors.
- Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions - Essential guidance for all sections of your review
- MECIR - Methodological Expectations for Conducting and reporting Cochrane Reviews
- RevMan - Review Manager (RevMan) is the core software for producing Cochrane Reviews
- Archie - central Cochrane server where documents and contact details are stored
- Top Tips for using RevMan and Archie
It can take some time to get up to speed with what is required to do a Cochrane Review. A really good place to start is with the online learning provided by Cochrane Training.
- Interactive Learning: Conducting an Intervention Review - Authors of Cochrane Reviews are entitled to free access to our flagship online course
- Cochrane Methods
- Conflict of Interest Policy
There are also regular webinars and face-to-face training opportunities, as well as online modules on relevant topics such as involving patients and carers in Cochrane Reviews.
If you need extra help with your review tasks you can post on Cochrane TaskExchange to reach a large community of volunteers. Please acknowledge volunteer contributors (e.g. translators) in your review.
