Cochrane Priority Reviews List: Update

2018 Update

October 2018 Update

 The latest version of the Cochrane Priority Reviews List is now available online as an e-book. Review titles can be filtered by Cochrane Network, Cochrane Review Group, stage (new or update) and availability (open to new authors or not). A guidance note has been developed by the Knowledge Translation Working Group on Embedding Prioritization to help Cochrane Groups undertake systematic review priority setting exercises.  In future all new titles on the list must have been identified through a formal, documented priority-setting process, which meets the mandatory requirements set out in the guidance.

Since the list was last updated, new titles have been added from the Cochrane Bone, Joint & Muscle Trauma, Cystic Fibrosis & Genetic Disorders, Dementia & Cognitive Improvement, ENT, Gynaecological, Neuro-oncology and Orphan Cancer, Heart, Hypertension, Oral Health and Tobacco Addiction Groups.

Please be aware that all titles in the priority list have author teams in place, except for those that appear under the ‘open to new authors’ filter. If you are interested in one of these open titles please contact the relevant Cochrane Review Group before submitting a review proposal.
