The Cochrane Methodology Review Group is the Cochrane Review Group responsible for Cochrane methodology reviews. These are a special type of Cochrane review, examining the evidence on methodological aspects of systematic reviews, randomised trials and other evaluations of health and social care. They are published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in the Cochrane Library, alongside Cochrane reviews of the effects of interventions, of diagnostic test accuracy and overviews of Cochrane reviews. The reviews are widely cited, and our Group-specific indicative Impact Factor for 2016 was in the top three for any Cochrane Review Group, at 16.000.
The Methodology Review Group has no dedicated funding but the editorial base for the Cochrane Methodology Review Group is based in the Northern Ireland Hub for Trials Methodology Research in Queen’s University of Belfast, Northern Ireland. If you would like to find out more about the Group, please contact the Co-ordinating Editor, Mike Clarke (m.clarke@qub.ac.uk).
