Authors: Risk of Bias 2

Which Risk of Bias tool should I use for my Cochrane review?

Cochrane is currently undertaking a pilot of Risk of Bias 2 (RoB2), which includes one Cochrane Hypertension review title.  

For now, we ask that Cochrane Hypertension authors continue to use the existing Risk of Bias 1 tool.  

Authors should not start using RoB2 unless they are part of the pilot or have reached an agreement with the editorial base to do so. It is totally fine to continue using RoB1 for now.
RevMan Web 

We encourage authors to take advantages of the new features and functionality offered by RevMan Web as soon as possible.
