The Cochrane Collaboration’s website is available at the following locations:
All Cochrane Centres, and most of the other entities, have their own website. These websites vary from hundreds of screens to sites consisting of one or two screens with a few links to other Cochrane sites. The Cochrane Collaboration website (www.cochrane.org/contact should be checked for the most up-to-date list of site addresses, as they are subject to change from time to time.
The German Cochrane Centre is responsible for maintaining the organisation’s website. An increasing number of Cochrane documents (for example, The Cochrane Collaboration’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, its Strategic Plan, minutes of the meetings of its Steering Group, and the text of its introductory leaflets) are available on this site. Many pages include content that may be edited online by an individual or group accountable to the Publishing Policy Group (a sub-group of the Steering Group), and implemented by the German Cochrane Centre. This responsibility is for substantive changes in content (not for copy editing or adding standard items that have already been approved on a generic basis, such as entity newsletters).
