Registering your review/protocol
PROSPERO is an international database of prospectively registered systematic reviews in health and social care. Key features from the review protocol are recorded and maintained as a permanent record.
A key aim of PROSPERO is to reduce unplanned duplication of reviews, and promote efficient use of resources.
Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews of primary research in human health care and health policy, and are internationally recognised as the highest standard in evidence-based health care. They investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. They also assess the accuracy of a diagnostic test for a given condition in a specific patient group and setting.
It is essential to register your interest in writing a review with the Cochrane Review Group responsible for publishing reviews in your area of interest.
The Campbell Collaboration (C2) is an international research network that produces systematic reviews of the effects of social interventions. C2 helps people make well-informed decisions by preparing, maintaining and disseminating systematic reviews in education, crime and justice, social welfare and international development.
C2's Resource Center contains information on producing a Campbell Collaboration systematic review.
