Free (in Australia) access to international evidence-based healthcare resources, with much in full-text. Produced by the Cochrane Collaboration.
The Cochrane Library is the main product of the Cochrane Collaboration, whose stated role is to make available systematic reviews of healthcare interventions, while promoting the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions.
There are two main databases in the Cochrane Library, as follows:
* Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (aka Cochrane Reviews, CDSR)
* Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (aka CENTRAL, Clinical Trials).
Cochrane Library also includes Cochrane Clinical Answers - short, clinically-focussed entry-points to research; Special Collections - curated collections on specific healthcare topics; and search access to the Epistemonikos health evidence database.
It is the Database of Systematic Reviews that is the main resource. This database includes all Cochrane Reviews (and protocols, which are reviews in preparation) prepared by Cochrane Review Groups. It also includes editorials and supplements. Material in this database is available in full-text.
When you search the Cochrane Library you will get results, in a tabbed format, from: Cochrane Reviews, Cochrane Protocols, Trials, Editorials, Special Collections, and Clinical Answers. A search performed in Basic Search will also return results from Epistemonikos (under the tab of "Other").
Cochrane Library is a subscription resource, but under an arrangement between the Australian Government and the Cochrane Collaboration, the resource is available free to internet users anywhere in Australia.
In addition to access via Cochrane, Charles Sturt users can access the Cochrane Library databases via the Ovid platform, where they are listed separately with titles beginning with EBM Reviews ....
