August 2013: On 20 August 2013, the Cochrane Policy Manual was replaced by this resource and the Cochrane Organisational Policy Manual. Many sections included in this resource originated from the Cochrane Policy Manual, which had been maintained and developed by the Central Executive Team. The Cochrane Editorial Unit (CEU) led the development of this resource with assistance from Noémie Aubert Bonn (CEU intern, February to September 2013). The CEU is grateful to those people who provided feedback on the resource as it developed and to those people who prepared text for each section (see named individuals on each section) or provided feedback on drafts.
The Cochrane Editorial Unit is responsible for maintaining and developing this resource.
