Cochrane has opportunities for everyone to make a contribution to our work.

Whether you just want to stay close to what we're about and what we're doing; support us with a financial contribution; build your health research skills and training; help us translate Cochrane evidence into your language; or eventually become an independent published author in one of the world's top health journals – the Cochrane Library – we have many ways that you can become part of the Cochrane community!

Joining Cochrane can be a commitment as immediate as screening records with only five minutes of training with Cochrane Crowd; or as demanding and involved as being accepted as an author of a Cochrane Review. Our contributors work on Cochrane projects during working hours, others in their spare time, in workplaces or at home. It's up to you, depending on your interests and time you can contribute.

Here are some examples of how you can contribute to Cochrane Iran:

    • Help translate Cochrane evidence (Translating Cochrane content into Persian is a priority for us. We are always pleased to hear from translators interested in joining our local teams of volunteers who work to make Cochrane Reviews available in Persian.)
    • Help translate, data extract, risk-of-bias assessment for randomised clinical trials (RCTs) studies in Persian to English for Cochrane Reviews
    • Become a Cochrane citizen scientist and help screen health records with Cochrane Crowd
