EMBASE screening project

The EMBASE screening project provides an opportunity for contributors to get involved with Cochrane work by screening EMBASE records for  publication in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL). No prior experience is necessary as the task supports a ‘learn as you do’ approach.  

This innovative crowd-sourced project has been developed with the purpose of identifying reports of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-RCTs from EMBASE. A web-based screening tool has been developed so that anyone, with access to the internet, can join the collective effort to screen the search results for relevance within CENTRAL.
