Date

What's new

 Inviting peer reviewers

Updated information on what the invitation email to authors should include: 

"The invitation email should contain the following:

The title and abstract and plain language summary of the Cochrane Review (or title only if a protocol);" 

 

Acknowledgement 

Cleared up an inconsistency between the policy and guidance around Acknowledgement of peer reviewers: The policy states a named peer-review process, but does not state that peer review names need to be made publicly available. The guidance implied that peer reviewer names should be made publicly available unless anonymity was agreed by the EinC. The wording in the guidance has been changed in the following sections to address this inconsistency:
