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.
We are very grateful to everyone who contributes their time and expertise to Cochrane Multiple Sclerosis and Rare Diseases of the CNS. 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:
