The Managing Editor is the first point of contact for enquiries about CIDG, and all issues to do with Cochrane Reviews. 

During 2022 and possibly longer, the CIDG will not be registering any new titles across our entire scope, including HIV/AIDS topics and Diagnostic Test Accuracy reviews. We are continuing to assist author teams complete reviews identified as priorities as part of the Cochrane strategy ( and our own strategic plan. 

Please note that COVID-19 titles are being co-ordinated by the central Cochrane Editorial and Methods Department. For proposed COVID-19 titles, please refer to the Cochrane COVID Rapid Reviews website (

If you believe that you have identified a topic that is an important current policy debate in our scope, and therefore should appear on these priority lists, then please contact the Managing Editor in the first instance.

While we are committed to capacity development, we now require all author teams to have some systematic review experience. We can offer some support to individuals from low- and middle- income countries who have good quantitative skills by bringing them into existing teams; this is generally in collaboration with our Partners in countries of Africa and Asia, or through existing authors with us. Details of our Partners can be found here:
