Editorial team

Editorial team

The work of the Cochrane Metabolic and Endocrine Disorders (CMED) group is supported by editors, peer referees and administrative staff. The editors and referees provide feedback on protocols and reviews and help the editorial team develop policies and guidelines for the group. Any editor who is an author of a Cochrane review is excluded from editorial decisions on the review for which she is a contributor.
