Statement from Cochrane

Cochrane has a long tradition of vigorous, open scientific debate that we cherish, and we want to play a constructive role in the current debate on the evidence relating to the benefits and harms of psychiatric drugs, resulting in better health decision-making and patient care. However, Cochrane’s ability to take part in the debate is damaged if we are falsely perceived to have taken a partisan position that we do not hold.

Cochrane signs on to support the REWARD Campaign

Cochrane has signed on to support the Lancet REWARD (REduce research Waste And Reward Diligence) Campaign.  The REWARD Campaign aims to "improve the value of the entire biomedical research system through systematic and continuous monitoring of the performance of funders, regulators, academic institutions, journals, and researchers; and to examine the culture of the research system to optimize the use of resources and the value of research."
