In some limited circumstances there may be a need to publish supplemental material to a Cochrane Review. At the current time we do not have the functionality to publish supplemental data/files alongside a Cochrane Review in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and so the following process must be followed:

  1. Inform ME Support so that help may be provided when working through the following steps;
  2. Ensure that it is not possible to include the data/files within the RevMan file (as ideal);
  3. Supplemental data/files may be deposited in a institutional or disciplinary repository or in a general repository, such as Figshare, Zenodo, or Dryad, with the following conditions:
    • the supplemental file(s) will have a DOI (or another type of permanent identifier) when included in the repository;
    • the full citation for the review (including the Review DOI) is included in each supplemental file;
    • copyright in the supplemental file is attributed to the authors – “© The Authors”;
    • Include links/references to the supplemental file(s) (including DOIs) within the Cochrane Review.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact ME Support (mesupport@cochrane.org).
