Preview published PDF service

The Preview Published PDF service, introduced in January 2012, allows Cochrane authors and other Archie users to view an advance proof of the PDF version of a Cochrane Review, as it will appear in the CDSR. The production of the PDF version of Cochrane Reviews (and protocols) published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is an automated process. While efforts are made to ensure that the review converts well to a PDF, sometimes there are problems with the display of the PDF.

A guide to using the Preview Published PDF service provides tips on how to avoid or manage any display problems.
