    The Cochrane Library is The "gold standard" of evidence-based health care -- a collection of databases built from The foundations of Cochrane Systematic Reviews. It helps those involved in health care decision-making stay up-to-date with all the latest evidence, providing them with the highest quality information about existing and new treatments. The Cochrane Library is a Collaboration between The Cochrane Collaboration, a non-profit organization that works to improve health care worldwide. Users include clinicians, policymakers, researchers, educators and students.


    I. Characteristics of evidence-based Medicine Library:

    Evidence-based: Combining the best research evidence with clinical expertise and patient values and wishes.

    Single source: A compilation of international studies on the efficacy of preventive care.

    Extensive: more than 5,000 evidence-based medicine system evaluations and more than 650,000 other data records covering clinical trials, methods, technologies and economic evaluations.

    High quality: In the Journal Citation Report published in 2017, the Cochrane Systematic Review had an impact factor of 6.124** in 2016, ranking 10th in the category of "general medicine".

    Independence: Follow rigorous methodology to ensure the completeness of evidence-based medical reviews and minimize bias.


    Updated information: Regularly updated - to ensure treatment decisions are based on the best available evidence.

    Easy to use: flexible browsing and searching functions, including searching terms through medical thesaurus (MeSH);


    Links to MEDLINE Abstracts and ISI Web of Science®; Links from CENTRAL records to corresponding records in PubMed.


    Collection of well-known platforms: At present, systematic reviews of Cochrane Library are included in retrieval platforms such as Web of Science and PubMed.


    Ii. Coverage of database disciplines (Product catalogue)




    1. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR)

    The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) is a leading journal and Database in the field of healthcare system Reviews. The CDSR includes Cochrane systematic reviews and protocols for Cochrane systematic reviews, as well as editorials and supplements.


    2. Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (Central)

    The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (Central) is a collection of reports on randomized and semi-randomized Controlled Trials. Most of these records are from bibliographic databases (primarily PubMed and Embase), but also include other published and unpublished sources, including clinicaltrials.gov and the WHO international registry of ClinicalTrials. CENTRAL was first published in 1996, but its comprehensiveness means it does not have a clear start date for data as other traditional biomedical databases do.


    In addition to bibliographic information (author, provenance, year, etc.), a CENTRAL record usually includes an abstract. But not the full text of the article. These records have nothing to do with language or date of publication.

    All Cochrane systematic review groups, as well as some Cochrane fields, retain reports of controlled clinical trials related to their areas of interest, which are called proprietary records. The contents of these exclusive records (that is, records not identified in PubMed) are only published in CENTRAL. The system evaluation team may also collect content unrelated to each area of interest, and these "manual search results" are added to CENTRAL. Some Cochrane centres search the general medical literature of their country or region and provide records to CENTRAL.


    3. Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCA)

    Cochrane Clinical Answers (CCA) is the entrance to the Cochrane systematic review and rigorous research. Its content is readable, easy to understand and clinically focused. It aims to improve clinical practice and inform immediate medical decisions. Each Cochrane clinical answer contains a clinical question, a short answer, and data on the results of the relevant Cochrane systematic review that is most relevant to our target audience and clinical professionals. Evidence is presented in a friendly tabular format that includes descriptions, data and graphic links. Cochrane Clinical Answers was jointly developed by Cochrane Innovation and Wiley.


    Platform access

    The Evidence-based Medicine Library has an independent access platform, Cochranelibrary.com, and provides full text in HTML, Enhanced HTML, and PDF formats.
