    Hi, for those of us not currently affiliated, can you share more insight into fee for entry?

      The fee is not monetary. To join Cochrane as an author you need to become an Author for one of the Groups. Ours is the Cochrane Schizophrenia Group. Authors join systematic review authoring teams to work together to produce an evidence based review (e.g. of a particular drug for treating schizophrenia) to aid clinicians and the general public to make well informed decisions when prescribing medication or agreeing to take it. If you would like to join our Group please see our website for details: Alternatively you can check out the other Cochrane groups at:

      I hope this helps. If you need any more advice please feel free to drop me an email on
