Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials

Alternative Titles
CENTRAL
Description

The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) includes details of published articles taken from bibliographic databases (notably MEDLINE and EMBASE), and other published and unpublished sources as part of the preparation of a Cochrane Review.  CENTRAL records include the title of the article, information on where it was published (bibliographic details) and, in many cases, a summary of the article. They do not contain the full text of the article.  

About three-fifths of the records in CENTRAL are taken from MEDLINE.  Also, each Cochrane Review Group maintains and updates a collection of controlled trials relevant to its own area of interest, these are called ‘Specialized Registers’.  Each Cochrane Review Group may also collect items that are not relevant to its own field of interest; these are known as ‘Handsearch Results’.

As of 22 Oct 2012, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials is available as part of The Cochrane Library.
