Welcome to the Cochrane Skin Wikipedia Initiative
Task: Use Cochrane Reviews to improve the quality of Wikipedia's skin related articles


  1. Determine a potential Wikipedia article where the conclusions of the Cochrane Review may help improve the article.
  2. Open the potential Wikipedia article and find a place for these conclusions (if applicable).
  3. If there is an obvious landing place for this information, paraphrase (re-word) the relevant conclusions into the Wikipedia article, and add the citation using the PMID. Please see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Medicine/How_to_edit for more information on how to properly insert the citation (using the PMID).
  4. If you are not sure that your edit is appropriate, please post your suggestions on the "talk page" of your Wikipedia article and wait for feedback from the community first before editing directly.
  5. After you add a review to an article, change the "N" to a "YES" on this project page (by clicking "edit")

If you are working on an edit or waiting for community feedback, add "In Progress" to the table
