Abstract

Objectives: To give participants practical experience of the searching and tracking features in the Cochrane Register of Studies (CRS). Description: The Cochrane Register of Studies (CRS) is the mandatory mechanism for submitting records to the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), but it also offers new functionality to enhance working practices in relation to systematic review searching, and the tracking of search results sent to review authors. Participants in this hands-on workshop will have the opportunity to explore a range of CRS features, including importing records from external databases, searching within the CRS, identifying duplicates, and managing the delivery of search results to authors (including previous search sets sent to the authors outside the CRS). There will be an opportunity for participants to discuss issues and to share their ideas and experience of using the CRS. This workshop is aimed at TSCs and other Cochrane group editorial staff members who are responsible for conducting and tracking literature searches for Cochrane systematic reviews.
