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 (the publisher of the Cochrane Library). A list of Co-publication agreements that allow journals to publish co-publications of Cochrane Reviews are arranged between the Editor/Publisher of the journal and Wiley, on behalf of Cochrane. 

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 agreement).

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.

Authors who submit an abridged Cochrane Review to a journal that already has a Cochrane co-publication agreement do not need to request permission from the Cochrane Review publishers (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.) or the Cochrane Editorial & Methods Department (EMD), but they must complete the ‘Permission to co-publish’ form (Permission to co-publish an abridged version of a Cochrane Review in a journal) and send this to the CRG’s Managing Editor. If permission is granted, the CRG should forward the completed form to the EMD for their information (contact emd@cochrane.org and ensure that the subject line of your email clearly states “Co-publication query”). This will help the EMD to track how Cochrane Reviews are being co-published, and this information will help with future revisions of this policy.

If an author team wishes to co-publish their review in a journal that is not listed below, the team should refer to Arranging co-publication of a Cochrane Review.

Journal editors or Cochrane Groups interested in arranging a Cochrane co-publication agreement must contact Cathryn Fowler, Associate Editor, Wiley. A template for a co-publication agreement is available for information only; see Co-publication templates for CRG Managing Editors(all agreements are administered solely by Wiley).
