The aim of the Methods Applications and Review Standards (MARS) Committee is to support the production of high quality and relevant Cochrane reviews. It is a forum where representatives of Methods Groups, Review Groups, the Cochrane Editorial Unit, Handbook Editors, the Information Management System team and Cochrane Training can consider issues around the methodological quality of Cochrane reviews, including methodological research needs, methodological standards, processes for monitoring and improving quality of conduct and reporting, and the implementation of new methods.
