Health care and health policy reviews now available: Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews

More than 300 Cochrane Systematic Reviews, funded under the 2007 and 2010 UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grant programmes, are available on Europe PMC.

This has been a collaborative project between Cochrane, Wiley, and the Europe PMC team, and has enabled us to make this subset of full-text reviews available to access for free via Europe PMC with the functionality that papers in Europe PMC enjoy.

Cochrane Reviews are systematic reviews of primary research in human health care and health policy, and are used internationally to inform evidence-based health care policy and practice. Those included in Europe PMC investigate the effects of interventions for prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, or studies assessing diagnostic test accuracy.

We look forward to adding further reviews in the future as they become available.
