Additional tables: something to be aware of…

Due to a bug in the software, it has been found that any additional tables that are NOT linked to the text in Cochrane reviews are not appearing in the published review. The reviews affected have been identified and are currently being amended. Can all authors ensure that if they are including additional tables in the review, that these are linked to the review text.

If you have any questions regarding this problem, contact the Editorial Base.
