Background: With the 2018 launch of the new Cochrane Library platform, we have retired the "About The Cochrane Collaboration" database. This database consisted of "Modules" published by each of the groups, and was published for the last time on 29 March 2018. The Modules have now been archived. 

The Module folder has been removed, and each group's Module has been moved to the Files folder and is now treated as an ordinary file, with all published versions retained. This allows us to maintain a historical archive of previously published modules.
Since the Module is likely to contain valuable information about the history of a group, we strongly suggest that they are not to be deleted.

Note: It is not possible to publish the module text any longer and the Module Editor role has been removed.

To find a Module:

  • Go to the Cochrane Group > Files > <full group name> module.htm OR
  • All published versions are available on the History tab
