Writing a review protocol - good practice and common errors

The purpose of this Cochrane Learning Live webinar is to provide up to date guidance for review authors wishing to learn more about developing their own protocol, as well as editors who want to learn more about recognising common errors at an earlier stage in the review process.

The webinar will outline the most common errors made in each section of Cochrane Review Protocols and how these errors can be avoided or addressed, to ensure that each section of the final protocol adheres to current MECIR Standards and Guidance.

The session is aimed at all systematic reviewers and editors with any experience and consists of a 40-minute presentation followed by Q&A session.
