Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for CRG MEs and AMEs to informally discuss editorial processes and operational issues. Description: The first part of the workshop will follow the format of a “Trivial pursuit” game and will have participants competing to answer questions on the systems and processes to produce Cochrane reviews in a light-hearted and fun atmosphere. Contestants will earn pieces of “pie” for each category of question answered, on such as topics on RevMan and workflows. Controversial questions will be included where more than one answer may be correct, but where there is only one officially correct answer. These will be discussed in more detail for better understanding of the reasons for the discrepancies. A feature of the Workshop will be the awarding of “Archies”, to recognize the unique achievements of MEs/AMEs and CRGs. The second part will have no pre-set agenda and will be set by the MEs themselves on the day. This will enable discussion and participation across the group and also allow for any issues relating to the ME/AME roles and to any aspect of the editorial process to be discussed.
