Editorial Process

Please note we do not accept unsolicited review titles, proposals or mansucripts via Editorial Manager

If you have an idea for a review proposal, please read the essential notes in Our editorial process and then contact Sue Marcus to sue.marcus@rdm.ox.ac.uk discuss it.

For  details of the steps involved see our Editorial Process 2021 (word document)

We aim to produce the highest quality reviews, in line with the Cochrane Methodological Expectations of Cochrane Intervention Reviews standard.

Cochrane reviews require a considerable time to produce so committment is essential. Whilst we will do everything we can to support author teams it is worth noting that the time needed to complete them is often more than expected. Please note that Cochrane has a clear rejection policy to which we adhere.

We have several author support documents prepared by the Cochrane Editorial Resources Committee.  Please contact Sue Marcus for sue.marcus@rdm.ox.ac.uk for these
