Your Cochrane Account is the only login you need to access all Cochrane resources and services.

For any account queries, please contact Cochrane Support.



Sign up for a Cochrane Account

Click SIGN UP NOW on any Cochrane login page. Then it's as easy as 1, 2, 3 ...

  1. Enter the personal details required on the sign-up form and choose a password.
  2. Look out for an email entitled 'Cochrane Account: verify your email address'. Please check your junk and spam folders just in case.
  3. Click the link in the email to verify your email address and activate your account. You will then be able to access Cochrane resources.


Please note that your Cochrane account credentials do not allow access to the Cochrane Library. The Cochrane Library login and Cochrane account login systems are completely separate, and Cochrane Support do not have the ability to access or confirm Cochrane Library login credentials. To access the Cochrane Library or request assistance with your Cochrane Library login information, you will need to contact Wiley.

Cochrane Account and Engage

How is my Cochrane Account used in Engage?

If you are using our volunteer hub, Engage, some of the information in your Cochrane Account profile can be displayed in Engage. This will never include your contact details. 


How do I add a profile picture?

You can add a profile picture to your Cochrane Account which will be used in Engage, but this is optional.

Communication preferences

How do I change my communication preferences?

When you opt in to communications, you are agreeing to receive emails from Cochrane on a range of topics including updates about events and organisational news, or governance information. Please also sign up for newsletters to hear all our latest news! 

How do I stop receiving communications from Cochrane?

If you no longer wish to receive any communications from Cochrane, please set your primary email address to opted out. If you opt out of communications, you may still receive emails about the work you complete with us.
