Peer review

Cochrane is in the process of introducing a new peer review policy with the aim of improving transparency in decision making, consistent with core Cochrane principles, standardising practice across Cochrane, and implementing best practice for peer review.

From January 2019 Cochrane will adopt a named peer review policy, whereby authors and peer reviewers know each other’s identities during the peer review process. A minimum standard will be required for acknowledgement of peer reviewer contributions.

We will be updating this page over the coming months but for now please see the Cochrane Website for more information about the policy.
