Developing your protocol

Once your title has been registered with us, you will receive a confirmation email containing a variety of resources that will be of use to you when writing your protocol & review. Our Information Specialist, in consultation with you, will develop the search strategies for your review.

You will receive in the confirmation email a template protocol. This will contain our standard methods text for you to adapt as appropriate. To develop your protocol further using this template, you will need to download and install Revman 5.

When you have developed your protocol to your satisfaction, it should be submitted to the editorial office via Revman or Archie. It will then be entered into the Cochrane Kidney and Transplant referee process.
