Prioritising review topics

In 2018 we undertook a prioritisation exercise, in line with central Cochrane methodologies, to determine a small number of priority titles for the next two years. This exercise was in response to the direction of travel indicated by Cochrane centrally towards fewer, high priority, high quality reviews produced in a timely manner, that will enable us to best utilise the limited capacity of the editorial base whilst providing the most valuable reviews for our stakeholders.

More information about the process can be found here.

In May 2019  we announced two priority titles that we would like to work on over the next two years:

  • Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12-step programs for alcohol use disorder (protocol)
  • Therapeutic communities for substance-related disorder (review update)
