 MECIR - Methodological Expectations of Cochrane Intervention Reviews

Cochrane has agreed standards for the conduct and reporting of Cochrane Reviews of interventions. These standards specify the core attributes of Cochrane Reviews on the effects of interventions. They provide authors and users of the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews with clear and transparent expectations of review conduct and reporting. Editorial bases, editors and review authors are expected to ensure these standards are met in Cochrane Reviews of interventions. Each standard is given a status of either mandatory (defined as compliance required for publication) or highly desirable (defined as expected but may be justifiably not done).
If a review does not meet the MECIR standards, it will be rejected or returned for corrections. Please see the Cochrane policy on rejecting reviews for further information.
