Editorial Team Restructure for the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions

New Editorial Team Structure

Cochrane Reviews are used to inform healthcare and health policy internationally. These systematic reviews should consistently and reliably use the most appropriate and scientifically justified methods. These methods are described in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions, which is updated and maintained to ensure that it reacts to novel methodological developments and is informed by the latest empirical evidence where possible. We need to maintain regular updates to ensure it consistently reflects best practice in systematic review methods. Cochrane is expanding its editorial team to sustain this important, highly cited handbook.

We have re-structured the team to increase capacity and provide further involvement and development opportunities. Julian Higgins, Rachel Churchill, Miranda Cumpston and Jackie Chandler welcome Senior Scientific Editor, James Thomas and Associate Scientific Editors, Toby Lasserson, Tianjing Li, Matthew Page and Vivian Welch.  We are also supported by an Editorial Assistant, Laura Mellor.

New roles are assigned to Miranda Cumpston (Implementation Editor) and Jackie Chandler (Managing Editor).
