3.1 Access to the CRS

You will need a Cochrane Account username and password to access the CRS.

The CRS is web-based, and can be found at crsweb.cochrane.org.

Access to the CRS is restricted to Cochrane editorial base staff, however only staff with the role of Information Specialist, or Assistant Information Specialist in Archie have their CRS permissions set to maximum. This means that they can edit as well as view records.

The super-user within each Review Group can set this role for users in Archie, and can also adjust CRS permissions for other people with roles in the Group. To do this, they need to go to the Group’s properties in Archie and change the level of permissions in the roles tab.
