Cochrane Anaesthesia Seeking Author Team for Review: 'Supplemental perioperative steroids for surgical patients with adrenal insufficiency'
Cochrane Anaesthesia is looking for a team of qualified authors to take over and produce a review for the vacant title CARG097: Supplemental perioperative steroids for surgical patients with adrenal insufficiency. This is a previously withdrawn review restarting at the protocol phase.
Those interested in taking on this opportunity should be aware that author teams must include members who have statistical knowledge; knowledge of search methods and systematic review methodology; and experience with systematic review tasks such as screening medical literature, conducting data extraction and critical appraisal, analyzing data, and applying GRADE. In other words, authors with the knowledge required to produce a high-quality systematic review. The author team must also include at least one clinical content area expert. The author team should also be available to begin work on the review by Fall/Winter 2020 and the primary members must be available to commit for the full duration of review production (i.e., protocol through to review update phase).
Interested parties should send us:
1. A short (max 250 word) statement of interest, communicating your interest in the review, the relevant expertise of your team members, and the reasons why you think your team would be a good fit for this opportunity.
2. Contact details for your proposed author team. When you submit the list of authors, please clearly state the role that each author will play in the review. (Please note that Cochrane Anaesthesia cannot assist with identifying members for incomplete author teams; please note the aforementioned qualifications required for author teams)
3. A copy of the current CV of each proposed team member.
4. Disclosure of any relevant conflicts of interest.
