Republishing Cochrane abstracts and/or plain language summaries in journals (e.g. 'Cochrane Corners') with or without additional commentary is an effective dissemination tool for keeping specialist audiences abreast of the most recent evidence published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR). Each journal publishing a 'Cochrane Corner' or similar feature must request permission to republish Cochrane Review abstracts and plain language summaries, and can do this by applying directly to the Cochrane Library publisher, John Wiley & Sons Ltd., for permission. Journal editors should contact Tony Aburrow, Associate Editor, Wiley (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the arrangements. Commentaries published in addition to a Cochrane Review abstract or plain language summary should clearly differentiate between the author(s) of the commentary and the author(s) of the Cochrane Review (i.e. it should not appear that a Cochrane Review has been published by a different set of authors).
