The Preview Published PDF function allows Cochrane authors and editorial teams to view an advance proof of the PDF version of a Cochrane Review, as it will appear in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR). The production of the PDF version of Cochrane Reviews (and protocols) published in the CDSR is an automated process. While efforts are made to ensure that the review converts well to a PDF, sometimes there are problems with the display of the PDF.

A guide to using the Preview Published PDF service provides tips on how to avoid or manage any display problems.

The Preview PDF Function is available from the View menu. The option is not available if the latest version of the review is a published version. See Viewing documents.
