An editorial was published on 30 October entitled "Prospective meta‐analyses and Cochrane's role in embracing next‐generation methodologies". Prospective meta-analysis (PMA) challenges the traditional approach to conducting a systematic review, including when and how the search is conducted and the role of trial authors, to minimise biases and maximise completeness and applicability. In the editorial, members of the Cochrane Prospective Meta-Analysis Methods Group describe the benefits of the approach and challenge Cochrane to find a balance in its systems and policies to accomodate next generation methods while maintaining quality and timeliness.
