Common errors and good practice in Cochrane intervention reviews

Paying attention to advices given in this brief, but valuable document makes the difference between a truly great Cochrane Review and one not so great.

Since September 2013, the Cochrane Editorial Unit (CEU) has been responsible for pre-publication screening of new intervention reviews. Based on these experiences this resource has been compiled to draw attention to the most prominent challenges faced by authors and editors in the production of Cochrane Reviews. Where possible it also identifies how they might be addressed.

After using this resource, you should be able to...
  • Avoid common mistakes in production of your Cochrane Review
  • Improve the quality of reporting in your Cochrane Review
