Your Role

The task which the Cochrane Musculoskeletal Group has undertaken is enormous and will only be achieved thanks to the good will of people (health care professionals, consumers and researchers) volunteering their skills and time. Many people around the world have become involved but there is always a need for continued assistance with the efforts of CMSG. We invite you to become involved in any of the following ways:

  • Review Author: If you have expertise in some aspect of healthcare related to musculoskeletal health, consider joining the Cochrane Musculoskeletal Group (CMSG). Being part of a Cochrane review group provides the support, resources and training to tackle a systematic review, and an international audience when your work is published in The Cochrane Library. Help is now wanted to develop reviews for priority topics.

  • External Referee: Critical evaluation is essential to ensure and maintain a high scientific standard throughout the process of making a systematic review and external referees are fundamental to achieving this standard. If you have methodological or content/topic expertise in any musculoskeletal condition, we invite you to join the CMSG external referee team.

    Please let us know if you are interested in writing a review, becoming an editor or handsearching a medical journal in the Get Involved section.
