Contact us

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

While the CIDG is committed to capacity development, we 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:

A new chapter for Cochrane

Cochrane has embarked on an important change programme to transform the way we produce the high-quality, independent and timely evidence. The new model is designed to ensure Cochrane remains viable, sustainable, and focused on the greatest global health and care challenges now and into the future. As part of the new model we are implementing a Central Editorial Service to streamline the editorial process.

Title proposals

Cochrane invites prospective authors to propose new Cochrane Reviews by submitting a proposal in Editorial Manager. Please see the Cochrane Library information for authors for further details.


We are very grateful to everyone who contributes their time and expertise to the CIDG. We encourage you to look out for further communications about Cochrane's plans for the future and new opportunities to get involved. You can stay connected by:
