Editorial and Publishing Policy Resource
About The Cochrane Collaboration

Groups in The Cochrane Collaboration – Cochrane Review Groups, Methods Groups, Fields, Cochrane Centres, the Cochrane Editorial Unit, Network for Consumers, Satellites and Branches, Cochrane Informatics and Knowledge Management Department (IKMD), and the Central Executive Team – use this database to publish information about their purpose, scope, and activities, as well as contact details. The type of information provided varies by group. Cochrane Review Groups, for example, provide additional information, including a list of new reviews, updated reviews, and protocols to be published in the next issue of the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (alongside the updated version of this article); registered and vacant titles; names of editors, authors, and peer reviewers; the methods that they use in their reviews; a glossary of terms which are commonly found in their reviews; and relevant publications.

Each group is responsible for the information in the article about their group.
