The "Searching for and selecting studies" chapter of the Cochrane Handbook
The main text of the Searching for and Selecting Studies chapter, which is published today, will be supplemented by a Technical Supplement providing further detail and an Appendix listing resources. We are still working on these and they should be published in the coming weeks.
I should like to thank not only the author team, see citation below, but also all the Editors and other editorial staff for helping us get to this point.
Please use the searching chapter – and please cite it!
