Happy Christmas from Cochrane Oral Health Group...

Cochrane Oral Health Group began 2013 with 195 publications (131 Cochrane reviews, and 64 protocols) on The Cochrane Library, and after a bumper year of publications (16 new protocols, 20 new reviews, and 17 review updates), COHG ends 2013 on a high with a total of 208 publications (145 reviews, 63 protocols) on The Cochrane Library.

We'd like to take the opportunity to thank all our authors for their co-operation in publishing Cochrane Reviews.

We recognise it is a long, challenging and arduous process to be involved in (taking an average of 2 years to support from title registration to publication as a full Cochrane Review), but we believe it is wholly worthwhile to have the opportunity to impact policy and practice across the world, by contributing to the production of gold-standard evidence-based research.

We wish you a very merry Christmas break, and our best wishes to you for the year ahead in 2014.

If you'd like to find out more about what we've published this year, please scroll down the page:
