Cochrane provides free licenses to the Cochrane Library for people interested in using their access for editing Wikipedia content. Requirements for access can be found on the Library Card platform. Access to the Cochrane Library is reviewed regularly - in case of non-use access will be redistributed to another Wikipedia editor.

Requirements[edit]

  • You have an account that is a minimum of 6 months old
  • You have a minimum of 500 edits to the encyclopedia
  • You do not already have access to this resource through another library or institution
  • You have made at least 10 edits to Wikimedia projects in the last month
  • You are not currently blocked from editing Wikipedia

If you don't quite meet the experience requirements but think you would still be a strong candidate for access, feel free to apply and you may be considered

Expectations[edit]

Approved editors may

  • Search, view, retrieve, and display portions of restricted content;
  • Electronically save portions of restricted content;
  • Print out single copies of portions of restricted content;

Approved editors will not

  • Share their account logins or passwords with others, or sell their access to other parties
  • Mass scrape or mass download Cochrane content
  • Systematically make printed or electronic copies of multiple extracts of restricted content available for any purpose.
  • Datamine metadata without permission, in order, for instance, to use metadata for auto-created stub articles.
  • Violate any terms and conditions which appear on the particular pages of the Cochrane website they are accessing.

Private and confidential information

Citation[edit]

  • Editors should always provide original citation information in addition to linking to Cochrane resources.
  • Editors should not provide bare links to restricted Cochrane pages
  • Note (subscription required) in the citation, where appropriate
  • Respect the copyright of Cochrane, in accordance with Wikipedia's copyright policy and their terms of use
  • Make efforts to provide full citation information in line with the citation examples provided below, or with the examples provided by Cochrane, where possible
Note that citation styles vary by article, and using every parameter in the example is not a requirement of access; editors can use the style most appropriate to the articles or projects they are working on.
