Cochrane Workshops 2020

Preparation and completion of a Cochrane review

We will be hosting workshops on the preparation and completion of a Cochrane review. The aim of the workshop is to facilitate participants in preparing a protocol, carrying out the review process, and writing up the review manuscript. The workshop is open to people who have registered a title with a Cochrane review group (see: How to get involved). The course material for this workshop is the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions.

When registering, please submit a protocol outline of at least 1 A-4 page and send it by e-mail to general@cochrane.dk. Please also state the name of the review group.

The rationale behind and the main characteristics of a Cochrane protocol will be discussed briefly at the workshop. We have allotted the remaining day to a detailed discussion of the individual participants' protocols.
