Free Access to Cochrane database

Indian residents will continue to have complimentary access to reliable, up-to-date, evidence-based health research from The Cochrane Library, thanks to the National Provision provided by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

Visit: http://www.cochrane.org/

The Cochrane Library contains high quality health care information, including Systematic Reviews from The Cochrane Collaboration. These Reviews bring together research on the effects of health care and are considered the gold standard for determining the relative effectiveness of different interventions. The Cochrane Collaboration is a UK registered international charity and the world’s leading producer of systematic Reviews. It has been demonstrated that Cochrane Systematic Reviews are of comparable or better quality and are updated more often than the Reviews published in print journals.
