Child Health Field seeks commentary authors for Evidence-Based Child Health

The Cochrane Child Health Field publishes a bimonthly journal, Evidence-Based Child Health: A Cochrane Review Journal. In each issue, we reprint several Cochrane reviews, selected from all areas of child health. For each review, we commission one or two short commentaries highlighting the relevance of the findings for child health practice and/or policy. The commentaries are about 500 words long. They are written by people with expertise in the area covered by the review, and experience in preparing systematic reviews and interpreting their findings. The general timeframe for writing the commentary is four to six weeks.

We are currently building a database of potential commentary authors. I would like to invite you to contribute your name to this database. You would be contacted when we are looking for a commentary in an area that matches your area(s) of interest. Of course, if you are not able to write one at the time we contact you, that's fine and we would keep your name in the database until you ask to be removed.

Of note, our publisher, Wiley Blackwell, will provide the author of each published commentary with a complimentary one-year individual subscription to The Cochrane Library.

If you are interested, please send the following information to Denise Thomson (
- Your name
- Profession (nurse, physician, pharmacist, social worker, consumer, etc.)
- Area(s) of specialty (emergency, trauma, respiratory, infectious diseases, public health, etc.)
- Topic(s) on which you would be interested in commenting (specific conditions e.g. diabetes, bronchiolitis, or broader areas - it's up to you).

along with any questions you may have.
