Closed or open meeting: 
In the last years, we have been developing EROS (Early Review Organizing Software). EROS is a software that helps authors during the first stages of a systematic review. At the beginning, EROS was a useful tool only for the screening and eligibility stages. Then, we had several meetings and conferences with the Editorial Unit and the IMS in order to develop key features such as multilinguality, compatibility with Revman, independent data collection, independent quality assessment and automatic flowchart. Everything is ready to be exported and analyzed in Revman. Now, EROS is technically ready to be launched within the Cochrane Collaboration. Lots of Cochrane groups have already used EROS and they are satisfied. Are we ready to move forward to use EROS within Cochrane?
