Publications of Cochrane UGPD Reviews

Co-publication

Cochrane reviews may be published (co-published) in peer-reviewed healthcare journals other than the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR). An essential condition of co-publication is that Cochrane reviews must remain free for dissemination in any and all media, without restriction from any of them. To ensure this, Cochrane authors grant the Collaboration worldwide licences for these activities, and do not sign over exclusive copyright to any journal or other publisher.

Authors are strongly discouraged from publishing Cochrane reviews in journals before they are ready for publication in CDSR. However, journals will sometimes insist that the publication of the review in CDSR should not precede publication in print. When this is the case, authors should submit a review for publication in the journal after agreement from their CRG editor and before publication in CDSR.

Please see section 2.4 of the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions for further details on co-publication.

Examples of journals which have co-publication arrangements in place include: American Journal of Gastroenterology, British Medical Journal and the Canadian Medical Association Journal. A full list of journals with existing co-publication arrangments can be found in Appendix 2 of the Cochrane Manual.



The following lists detail where reviews published by the UGPD group have also been published elsewhere. The citations are categorised by the following publication types:

NHS Executive Evidence Review: "Improving Outcomes in Upper GI Cancers". This evidence review has been published and used by the NHS Centre for Research and Development in the development of their manual: "Guidance on Commissioning Cancer Services: Upper GI Cancer". The Manual will, in turn, be used by Health Authorities to provide guidance in the commissioning of relevant services.

The review "Short-term treatment with proton pump inhibitors, H2-receptor antagonists and prokinetics for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease-like symptoms and endoscopy negative reflux disease" will be included in primary care guidelines by the European Society for Primary Care Gastroenterology.

The HTA Report: "Managing the Dyspeptic Patient" will be used as the evidence base for the production of guidelines by the British Society of Gastroenterology.

Dr R. Malthaner (UGPD editor and reviewer) and Dr Wong (UGPD reviewer) are contributing reviews of chemo- or radiotherapy as adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy for oesophageal resectable cancer and took the lead in drafting and revising the Cancer Care Ontario Practice Guidelines Initiative, recently submitted to "Cancer Practice and Control".

Tierney, J The results of the pre-op RT in oesophageal cancer are included in the British Columbia Cancer Agency Cancer Management Guidelines for Gastrointestinal Cancer.
