News from the Cochrane Anaesthesia, Critical and Emergency Care Group

Cochrane is splitting Cochrane Anaesthesia, Critical and Emergency Care (ACE) into two new groups: Cochrane Anaesthesia and Cochrane Emergency and Critical Care. We are seeking two Co-ordinating Editors to lead these groups.

As of January 2018, two new groups will be created as a result of splitting the portfolio of the current ACE Group: Cochrane Anaesthesia and Cochrane Emergency and Critical Care.

After 15 and seven years of service, respectively, as Co-ordinating Editors for the Cochrane ACE Group, Ann Moller and Nathan Pace have decided to step down. They will continue their involvement as Editors for the new groups. We thank Ann and Nathan for their contribution as Co-ordinating Editors to Cochrane.

We are looking to appoint two new Co-ordinating Editors for Cochrane Anaesthesia and Cochrane Emergency and Critical Care.

Jane Cracknell, Cochrane ACE’s Managing Editor (based in the UK), and Janne Vendt, Cochrane ACE’s Information Specialist (based in Denmark), have both indicated that they are willing to stay on in support of the two new groups, as appropriate.

The CRCG portfolio of reviews includes 207 active reviews and 47 protocols.

We will accept applications from within the existing Cochrane community and beyond. Applicants should be aware of the following requirements:

  1. The Co-ordinating Editor should have experience of authoring and editing Cochrane Reviews, in addition to relevant content expertise.
  2. The Co-ordinating Editor will work with the current Editors for continuity with regards to securing funding for the activities of the Group, and completing the CRG re-accreditation process.
  3. The Co-ordinating Editor will be required to sign the Collaboration Agreement, and will need to demonstrate their capacity to commit at least 0.1 FTE per week to the activities of the Group, and preferably more.
  4. The Co-ordinating Editor will develop the Editorial Board for the group.
