Archie stores only versions of reviews submitted for editorial approval or shared. See Authoring and editorial phases.

The View menu gives the following options:

  • Latest version - view in the document viewer. See Viewing documents.
  • Download RM5. If the user does not have permission to view the latest draft version, the latest published version is downloaded instead.   
  • Preview published PDF - this generates a proof of how the published PDF version of the review will look. The process involves having a file generated by the publisher's systems and can take a while to complete.       
  • View in the Cochrane Library - view a published review on the Cochrane Library.

PDF appearance guidance

Please see the 'Improving your Cochrane Review PDF' guide with tips for improving the appearance of a published PDF preview . These tips refer to making changes to the review in Review Manager that will affect the appearance of the PDF.
