Organizations Producing Systematic Reviews

Cochrane Review Groups and Networks

The Cochrane Reviews in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews are prepared by authors who register titles with one of the Cochrane Review Groups. Each Cochrane Review Group focuses on a specific topic area and is led by a Co-ordinating Editor(s) and an editorial team, including a Managing Editor and an Information Specialist. The Cochrane Review Groups provide authors with methodological and editorial support to prepare Cochrane Reviews, and manage the editorial process, including peer review.

All Co-ordinating Editors and other Cochrane Review Group staff and editors have made declarations of conflicts of interest.

Cochrane Review Groups are members of one of eight Networks, which are responsible for the efficient and timely production of high-quality systematic reviews that address the most important research questions for decision makers.

Systematic Review Journal

Systematic Reviews encompasses all aspects of the design, conduct and reporting of systematic reviews. This open access journal publishes high quality systematic review products including systematic review protocols, systematic reviews related to a very broad definition of health, rapid reviews, updates of already completed systematic reviews, and methods research related to the science of systematic reviews, such as decision modelling. At this time Systematic Reviews does not accept reviews of in vitro studies.  The journal also aims to ensure that the results of all well-conducted systematic reviews are published, regardless of their outcome.
