Cochrane Skin review prioritisation exercise 2020

*** Survey now closed, responses being collated *** See our prioritisation page

Cochrane Skin is undertaking another review of its systematic review titles. We would like to ask if you would think about which Cochrane reviews or updates you would like us to prioritise over the next three years. We will gather the views of a wide range of stakeholders together and make a final shortlist with our international editors. We will then share the results of this exercise on our website. 


This process will involve looking at our existing list of reviews and protocols (click on 'Full list'), as well as new title suggestions. New reviews should be concerned with healthcare interventions and have a high potential impact on individual or public health. Due to the availability of high-level methodological input within Cochrane, we are particularly interested in supporting teams undertaking more methodologically challenging systematic reviews. For example, reviews including network meta-analysis, individual patient meta-analysis, diagnostic test accuracy, prognosis, and living reviews.


So for now, please complete this survey, letting us know what you regard as the most important topics for us to prioritise as a Cochrane Skin review in the next three years. You can suggest up to five, and please tell us why you think they are important. The survey contains 7 questions and should take around 5-10 minutes to complete. All submissions will be kept confidential and data from this survey will only be accessible by the members of the Cochrane Skin Editorial Board.

  • If you have a colleague or contact whom you feel should complete the survey, please feel free to share the survey link with them. 
  • If you have any questions please contact Helen Scott, Assistant Managing Editor, at 

The survey will be open until 31 January 2020. Thank you for your valuable feedback!
