The Cochrane Library is a collection of biomedical databases containing evidence-based information to assist in healthcare decisions. The collection includes:
- Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR), a journal well known for its high-quality systematic reviews. The reviews and editorials found in Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) are indexed in PubMed.
- Cochrane Clinical Answers a readable, digestible, clinically-focused entry point to rigorous research from Cochrane Reviews. They are designed to be actionable and to inform point-of-care decision-making.
