Potential authors interested in submitting a review proposal to Cochrane Kidney and Transplant should log into Editorial Manager at and select Submit New Manuscript.

Please follow the instructions for authors on submitting new proposals.

Please note:

  • The steps indicate 'submit new manuscript' this is now an online form. Do NOT attach any files.
  • Before submitting a proposal, all authors must check the Cochrane Library to ensure that their topic does not overlap with existing protocols or reviews.
  • For the section, 'Why is it important to do this review?', please limit your response to 2 to 3 short paragraphs.

If we are interested in your proposal we will invite you to submit a full proposal via the online form within Editorial Manager.
