Cochrane Methodology Register (Evidence-Based Medicine Reviews)
Cochrane Methodology Register contains studies relevant to the methods of systematic reviews of healthcare and social interventions.
The database includes journal articles, book chapters, conference proceedings, conference abstracts, and reports of ongoing methodological research. Relevant records are identified primarily through a program of hand-searching undertaken by the UK Cochrane Centre. The register aims to include all published reports of empirical methodological studies that could be relevant for inclusion in a Cochrane methodology review, along with comparative and descriptive studies relevant to the conduct of systematic reviews of healthcare interventions.
The Cochrane Methodology Register contains over 9,000 bibliographic references to controlled trials in healthcare. The content of this database is constantly expanded upon as a direct result of an extensive hand-searching program and the development of a series of search strategies in MEDLINE and EMBASE to identify relevant reports. This activity is funded by the National Health Service Research and Development Methodology Programme in England.
