Reporting search dates in Cochrane Reviews

Date

Section

What's new

January 2015

General informationAt the joint meetings of the Co-ordinating Editors, Managing Editors, and Trials Search Co-ordinators held during the Cochrane Colloquia in Auckland (2012) and Quebec (2013) it was agreed that ‘Date of search’ should be used instead of ‘Assessed as up-to-date’ to reflect the search and full incorporation of all search results into a Cochrane Review. The technical issues associated with retiring the ‘Assessed as up-to-date’ field are currently being addressed by Cochrane and Wiley; however this will not prevent editorial teams from adhering to this new policy on how to report search dates.
