Abstract: In 1993 the Cochrane Collaboration, an international non-profit organization aiming
at producing, updating and disseminating systematic reviews, was founded. Several
years later, in 1999, the Chinese Cochrane centre opened in Chengdu, to provide
support to (1) Chinese researchers willing to produce reviews and (2) politicians and
practitioners willing to start using the results in daily practice. We searched PubMed
and the database of the Chinese Cochrane Centre to retrieve data on the overall
number of articles and reviews produced in the Chinese language for the period
1990 to 2006. Although the number of reviews increased substantially since the year
2000, the percentage of reviews in the overall number of articles indexed in PubMed
remains modest.
