Submit a version to Editorial Manager

From March 2021, Cochrane's editorial processing will move out into Editorial Manager. Authors whose reviews are going through the editorial process in Editorial Manager, will be notified by their review group.

Authors will need to:

  • await an email Invitation to submit from your editorial team
  • download review files from RevMan Web prior to submission
  • upload review files to Editorial Manager

Editorial Phase

When you upload your submission files to Editorial Manager, this will move the review to Editorial Phase (authors can no longer edit). 

Download review files for submission

  1. Go to the RevMan Web dashboard for your review
  2. Confirm you are happy with the current version, and that it meets editorial guidelines
  3. Click Submit current version in the Actions menu on the dashboard 
  4. When the submission pop-up appears, add a relevant version description e.g. 'For Submission to Editorial Manager'
  5. Download files. This may take several minutes.

A PDF and a zip file will be automatically saved in your Downloads folder. Both file names will include the CD number of your review
