Review Groups

List of Cochrane Review Groups

Cochrane Review Groups (CRGs) help authors to produce high-quality systematic reviews in their topic areas. A number of UK-based review groups closed in 2023; below are links to review groups that remain active and those that have closed. If you are looking for resources from closed review groups, you can find links to their archived websites. For any queries, please contact

If you previously contributed to a review group which has now closed, Cochrane still needs you! We welcome proposals for new reviews in all topic areas, if you would like to propose a new Cochrane Review. There are also other opportunities to stay involved in our work.
