Training and support for Cochrane review authors

Green woven sticks

Cochrane Australia provides training and support for authors and editors around the country. Throughout the year we hold regular workshops designed to meet the needs of both new and more experienced authors. Introductory training for new authors covers the methods required for most systematic reviews.

For those further into the review process, review completion workshops provide dedicated support and time to help authors get their reviews ready for submission. Workshops are free, provided participants are either working on or intending to work on a registered Cochrane review. Visit our Timetable and registration page for full details. 

From time to time we run special workshops covering more advanced topics, or hosted by interested organisations. We also hold an annual symposium for regional contributors, which provides an in-depth look at current methodological and organisational issues that affect review authors, staff of Cochrane groups, and other interested contributors.

We are pleased to provide information about a three-day workshop on network meta-analysis being held in Sydney from 2-4 November 2018 which is being run by international members of Cochrane's Comparing Multiple Interventions Methods Group.
