About us

Hello and welcome to the Cochrane Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Review Group (PaPaS)

***As of 30 May 2017, we are no longer accepting new title proposals, until further notice. This is due to the uncertainty around the structure and function of Cochrane Review Groups which are currently under review. You can read more about this project here: Organizational Structure and Function. We understand that the review will conclude towards the end of the year, at which time we will re-assess our position in light of any changes that will need to be implemented. For any queries, please contact us.***

PaPaS is based in Oxford, UK, and is funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) as part of the Research and Development programme. We are one of 53 Cochrane review groups that specialise in different areas of health based in different countries around the world. Cochrane is an international not-for-profit and independent organization dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare that is readily available worldwide.

Our aim at PaPaS is to encourage and assist authors to write systematic reviews in a topic area relevant to our group for publication in the Cochrane Library.

The 2015 IMPACT FACTOR for PaPaS is 6.208.

We hope that you will find all the information you need on our website. For the latest news from PaPaS, please visit the News page.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any enquiries. 

Best wishes,

Professor Chris Eccleston and the editorial team
