About Smglist

SMGlist provides a way for people who have a strong interest in meta-analysis and The Cochrane Collaboration (who may or may not be involved with Cochrane reviews) to discuss statistical issues relevant to Cochrane reviews. SMGlist is also used to keep up to date with Statistical Methods Group meetings, publications, etc. It is permissible for list members to advertise jobs on the list, provided that they are related to systematic reviews/evidence synthesis and Cochrane activities. All communications should be sent using regular e-mail text (no attachments).
