The future of evidence synthesis in Cochrane

On September 9, 2021, Cochrane’s Editor in Chief, Karla Soares-Weiser, presented a reimagining of Cochrane’s model for synthesizing evidence to the Cochrane Community at the Join the Conversation webinars. To respond to the immediate and future challenges facing our organization, she laid out a proposal for a new structure and process for producing evidence synthesis. A recording of this presentation is available below.

There are multiple parts of this proposal, which you can explore below. Information gathered in Community Engagement Workshops and the Editorial Independence and Efficiency Project will be presented in a business case to the Governing Board by the end of December 2021.
