Authors should read Cochrane's policy to understand what Cochrane expects of authors and what authors can expect of Cochrane. 

Our responsibilities are:

  • To produce high quality Cochrane reviews for publication in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, available on the Cochrane Library
  • To ensure that reviews published in the Cochrane Library are updated as new evidence becomes available
  • To establish and maintain a comprehensive register of trials relating to our scope, containing published, unpublished, ongoing and planned trials of all interventions and treatments.

Please note that the Cochrane ARI Executive Team does not take responsibility for the accuracy of content or grading of evidence in a review. Responsibility and accuracy lies with the review authors.
