We collaborate with a number of journals and publish articles related to our reviews and evidence-based medicine in general, with regular ‘Cochrane Corners’ in the journals Paediatric Respiratory Reviews and, more recently, Thorax (see below). We are also working as part of a committee at the Journal of Cystic Fibrosis to produce lay summaries of articles they publish in their journal.
