Just 60 seconds a day can make a difference
In the last 20 years research output has grown exponentially making it really difficult to keep up with the evidence. As a Cochrane citizen scientist you would be helping us to identify and describe the research that may be very important in helping us to determine whether a treatment works, or whether a diagnostic test is accurate.
What do I need to do exactly?
Try it out!
No previous experience necessary. We’ll walk you through all that you need to know.
Categorise research at the click of a button
Every click makes it faster and easier for us to find research that helps answer vitally important questions about the effects of a treatment.
Have a cup of tea and relax
Work at your own pace, whenever you want. Just a few minutes a day makes a huge difference. Without this work we cannot accurately answer the questions about effectiveness of new treatments.
Be a part of a thriving community that is passionate about improving health
I hope to be able to contribute as much as I can in college and in my life after graduation, but I’d like to do something now. When I saw that I can work directly with Cochrane I was really excited.
- Joshua Maleitzke, Biochemistry student
It feels good to be useful, because Cochrane is a prestigous organisation and also because it helps us stay involved with medical research.
-Dr Shireen Rafeeq, Public Health Specialist
Something useful you can do if you have just a few minutes. I like to be part of the team and getting feedback on my decisions.
-Liz Doney, Information Specialist
I like that I can make a small contribution to Cochrane from my own home, on my own schedule.
