As a general guideline, where an author made a substantial contribution to a Cochrane Review or protocol for a Cochrane Review (sufficient to warrant authorship) but died before publication, and the co-authors feel it is appropriate to include the deceased author on the byline, then editorial teams could permit inclusion of the author on the byline until the review is updated.

The living authors alternatively may choose to provide an acknowledgment or dedication to their colleague’s contribution.
