Editorial Team

The work of Cochrane Public Health is carried out by a dedicated group of volunteer editors and paid support staff. As well as providing feedback on reviews, the editorial team develop policies and guidelines for the Group to ensure reviews are of high quality and reflect the needs of end users.

The editors all have the opportunity to review title proposals (via submitted Review Proposal  Forms - RPFs) from prospective author teams. Each registered review is allocated a contact editor, whose role it is to compile and add to comments from the alloted statistician, Information specialist, LMIC advisor and Methods advisor and, at stage two of the editorial process, the external referees, for presentation to the athor team.
