How can we improve the Cochrane Style Manual?

References: inclusion of 'Abstract' at end of title?

Query from Denise Mitchell: Quite a few authors put '[Abstract]' at the end of a study title to indicate (obviously!) that it's an abstract, either from a conference or rather than full text. I can't see this in the Style Manual and I delete it but can you tell me if I'm right to do so, please?

    This could stay in if it has already been included; no need to remove. It should be placed at the end of a title, as per NLM guidance. We should consider adding this as guidance to the Style Manual.
