Objectives:
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.

Description:
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.
