Cochrane Communications for Group Staff

There’s a lot going on at Cochrane! Use our communication channels to stay up to date.

Slack

Cochrane uses Slack (online chat platform) to encourage communication between members of our community. Log in to Slack with your Cochrane Account.

Slack is available to members of Cochrane Groups with the following group roles:

  • Staff in Cochrane Central Executive, Fields, Geographic Groups, Review Groups, Satellites and Networks
  • Group Member in Governing Board
  • Managing Translator in Translation Projects
  • Convenor in Methods Groups
  • Copy Editor

To confirm if you have a qualifying role for Slack access, check the Roles tab on your Cochrane Account.

If you don't have a qualifying role, contact your primary group. A group Super User can allocate you a relevant role.

There is guidance for Super Users on assigning roles in the Archie Knowledge Base.

Queries? Contact support@cochrane.org

Newsletters

Cochrane has a wide range of regular newsletters.

Our main external newsletter is Cochrane Connect and our community newsletter is Cochrane Community. To receive these newsletters, select the relevant boxes on the Communications tab in your Cochrane Account.

Mailing lists

Other mailing lists are maintained manually. New Group staff should email admin@cochrane.org with their name, email, and Group role. Our Cochrane administrative team will ensure they are added to to the correct mailing lists.

  • CommsNetwork: At least one person from each Cochrane group should sign up for this communications newsletter. This is a weekly digest of everything that is happening at Cochrane which provides content for dissemination on social media and for planning knowledge translation activities.
  • Translation Digest: Anyone interested in Cochrane’s translation activities, or keen to hear about volunteer opportunities in different languages, is welcome to subscribe.

How do I get news posted in a newsletter or a mailing list?

If you have news or stories you would like to share with the Cochrane community or a larger audience, please let us know!

Items submitted may be disseminated through one or more of the following channels: news on cochrane.org, news on Community, Community blog post, Cochrane Community newsletter, our external newsletter Cochrane Connect, CommsNetwork Digest, a Cochrane group digest  or one of our social media channels.
