Resources for Review Authors

Getting involved as a Review Author                                                             
Cochrane Neonatal welcomes new authors. Please note that new authors must work with experienced authors on their review team. Cochrane Neonatal only accepts 8-10 high priority new titles per year, submitted through our new title request process. In some cases, new authors are invited to update existing Cochrane Neonatal reviews. If not authoring a review, there are still many other ways to get involved with Cochrane.
