Abstract text
This workshop is aimed at authors wishing to make a podcast to accompany their Cochrane Review, for inclusion in The Cochrane Library. It would also be of benefit to those supporting authors, such as Managing Editors.

The workshop will take you step-by-step through the process involved in making a recording, from advice on the technical requirements of recording a podcast to editorial ideas and tips on achieving the best sound quality and preparing the best script. The participants in their groups, by the end of the workshop, will prepare a script and attempt to record a podcast from a chosen review.
