Authors and affiliations

Author names and author order

Authors listed on a review, and the order in which they appear, are managed in Archie. Changes can be made by Review Group editorial teams. See Archie Knowledge Base for instructions on Document roles. Editorial teams can also update author names and emails in Archie.

Authors can also update their own names and emails in Cochrane Account.

Author affiliations

Author affiliations are managed on a review-by-review basis in RevMan Web for all reviews, including those where the text is not editable in RevMan Web. Affiliations can be edited in the Authors section under Review information

  • Authors - you can add or edit your affiliation information when the review is in Authoring phase. Affiliation changes made in one review will not automatically update other reviews. If your affiliations change, you will need to update your affiliations on each review where you are an author.
  • Editorial teams - you can add or edit affiliation information when the review is in Authoring or Editorial phase.
