Get involved

Thank you for your interest in the Cochrane EPOC group. EPOC offers opportunities in an innovative and growing area of research. Our success is founded on volunteers who write and peer review our publications. We are interested in partnering with you. Please choose from the options on the left to check our requirements for proposing a new review title.

If you have a broader interest in contributing to the work that Cochrane does and do not have the time to commit to being a review author you can volunteer for Cochrane Crowd or help with specific tasks using Task Exchange. For more information on joining Cochrane and the ways in which you can become involved see the Join Cochrane membership pages.

We are always interested in obtaining feedback on our reviews in pre-publication. If you have clinical or methodological expertise or are a consumer with an interest in any of our review topics we would like to hear from you. Please contact one of our Managing Editors for more information.
