Cochrane Style Manual

Guidance on the format and content of Cochrane review abstracts is available in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions and the Methodological Expectations of Cochrane Intervention Reviews (MECIR) reporting standards.

Abstracts must be no more than 1000 words long, and it is highly desirable for abstracts to be less than 700 words.
