Some journals have indicated that they would like to publish abridged versions of Cochrane Reviews. In the past these have been informal agreements, but since 2010 co-publication agreements have been formalized between the editor of the journal, the Editor in Chief of the Cochrane Library, and Wiley (publisher). A list of journals that have signed a Cochrane co-publication agreement is available (see below). Journal editors interested in arranging a Cochrane co-publication agreement should contact the Editor in Chief of the Cochrane Library. A template for a co-publication agreement is available (Template co-publication agreementavailable; see Co-publication forms and templates).

Authors should be aware that, even if such an agreement is in place, the Cochrane Review article is likely to go through the journal’s own peer review and editorial process, in addition to the Cochrane Review Group's (CRG's) processes. CRGs are encouraged to work with journal editorial teams that maintain a co-publication agreement, so that the process can be made as efficient as possible.
