Would you like to write an Evidently Cochrane blog?

Something we, and our readers, really value about our blogs is that they often go beyond summarizing Cochrane evidence to include experience and expertise from people for whom that evidence may be relevant.

We now have blogs in four ‘Evidence for Everyday’ series, written primarily for nurses, midwives, allied health professionals and patients/anyone making health choices, and blogs outside these series too. We really want to hear these voices in our blogs and have ‘real world’ perspectives on the evidence – and on the missing bits. Those missing bits might be where no reliable evidence exists, where research has failed to explore things that matter most to people, or perhaps where there are barriers to being able to find and use research.

In short, Evidently Cochrane needs you! We would like to invite expressions of interest in blogging for us. We don’t pay for blogs, but it’s a great thing to do for your Continuing Professional Development! There are two ways to contribute. You can either write a whole blog, or a shorter piece for inclusion in a blog. Our Guide to blogging will give you some useful information. Please note, we are not looking for people to blog for us on a regular basis, and submission of a blog does not guarantee publication.

New Cochrane evidence is being published all the time. On this page, you’ll find a list of topics and Cochrane reviews which we’ve identified as good topics for blogs. We’ll keep this list up to date.

If you are interested in blogging about any of them, or have an area of interest/expertise about which relevant blogs may be published in one of our four Everyday series, please complete the form below.

Students, of any discipline, interested in blogging about evidence might like to head over to Students 4 Best Evidence and take a look at their blog wish list here, or you could write about any of the topics here.
