1. Unsigned License for Publication forms delaying publication
If an author is unable to complete their License for Publication (LfP) form due to unforeseen circumstances, e.g. ill health, check advice on the Editorial and Publishing Policy Resource (EPPR) http://community.cochrane.org/editorial-and-publishing-policy-resource/submitting-forms-behalf-author).
If you still have any queries, contact ME Support.
2. Updated sections to the Editorial and Publishing Policy Resource (EPPR)

Feedback policy/comments submitted
The EPPR now includes updated and extended guidance on the handling of comments received via the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews in the Cochrane Library. The guidance was developed in consultation with the MEs’ Executive and was informed by a workshop at the Cochrane Colloquium in 2014. It covers the process for receiving, responding to, and publishing comments, guidance on how and when to amend or update the associated review, and how to handle some specific situations.
