Funding and Support

Cochrane Epilepsy is part of the international Cochrane collaboration, an independent not-for-profit consortium dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care. The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) is the largest single funder of this Cochrane review group.

The editorial office is based within the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Liverpool.

Cochrane's central functions are funded by royalties from its publishers, John Wiley and Sons Limited, which come from sales of subscriptions to the Cochrane Library. The individual entities of Cochrane are funded by a large variety of governmental, institutional and private funding sources, and are bound by an organisation-wide policy limiting uses of funds from corporate sponsors.
