If an author changes their name after the publication of a Cochrane Review (e.g. through marriage), the name on the published version of the Cochrane Review should not be changed until the next citation version (e.g. with a review update); a new citation version should not be created for this purpose.

If, however, a review was published with an error in the author’s name (at the time of publication), then the Cochrane Review should be republished as an amendment with a new citation to correct this error; see What's New/publishing events (add link).
