CRS

Tell us what you need.
Start with a short label and then a fuller description. If you can, try to include a ‘user story’ as the first line of the description. A user story is about clearly telling is who you are, what you want and why you need it.

How can we improve CRS?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Not an RCT in CRS-W

    As a CIS I would like to be able to identify references in CENTRAL, via CS-W as not RCT's. Similar to the feature in CRSO, but with one click. If this was then highlighted for others (and myself to see) that would be very useful.

    • CRS group level data autofeed to group website

      It would be great if certain metrics we generate around maintaining our registers could feed automatically to the relevant CRG website as a way of communicating the state, flow, nature of the current evidence in a particular area. For example: this month, XX new trials in dementia identified; of those XX are pharmacological; XX include over XXX participants; XX are ongoing etc. Obviously the metrics would depend on what the group has extracted and I've described metrics we extract/collect, but it could be things like xx records fed into CENTRAL etc.

            • Add Study/Reference Record Directly from CRSWEB into the Review in Archie/RevMan without Export/Import

              As a TSC, I would like to 'Mark' the Study/Reference as 'Studies Awaiting Classification' or 'Classification Pending References' in CRSWEB and the marked Study/Reference goes directly into of the related section in the Review in Archie/RevMan. Then there will be no need for Export from CRS and Import into Export.

                                      • Publish study record commentary

                                        We want to be able to record our decisions or commentary in a CRS study record (e.g. whether a trial should trigger an update of a Cochrane Review or not) and make it public either through CRS online or on the Cochrane Library.

                                          It should be easier to find post-publication amendments to studies - not just retractions, but also expressions of concern, corrections and errata, which could all impact upon the data and conclusions of the original study. It would be useful to be able to include all of these post-publication amendments in CRS, and then also to link post-publication amendments to the original study record.

                                            This has been discussed previously, there isn’t an easy mechanism for retractions. Solution is to link retractions / errata / corrections to a study. Sam will email Bryony and Anne will put a piece in the digest.
