Cochrane Crowd is here – become a Cochrane citizen scientist!

Cochrane Crowd has launched!


This beta platform will enable anyone to get involved with Cochrane and help identify the evidence we need to make informed healthcare decisions.


The platform, delivered as part of Cochrane’s Project Transform, builds on the hugely successful Embase project where a community of over 2,000 people helped identify well over 20,000 reports of randomized trials for Cochrane’s Central Register of Controlled Trials.

And the fun is only just beginning. Over the next few weeks and months, Cochrane Crowd will roll out more tasks aimed at classifying and describing the evidence.

Finally, if you took part in the Embase project, you can use those log-in details and pick up where you left off.
