If you intend to perform a systematic review, you must complete a review proposal form and email it to Ema Roque. The editorial base of the Movement Disorders Group will verify if the review subject is within the group's scope and check that there is no overlap with other Cochrane review. All the review proposals are submitted to approval to the Movement Disorders editorial board.

All Cochrane reviews are expected to comply with the Methodological Expectations of Cochrane Intervention Reviews (MECIR) conduct and reporting standards.
