Covidence is a web-based tool that can be used to conduct your reviews more efficiently. It will help you with title/abstract screening, full-text screening, data abstraction, and quality assessment. It is geared towards those conducting a systematic review, meta-analysis, or clinical guideline, and is great for collaborative work. Covidence works seamlessly with your favorite reference managers like EndNote, Zotero, or Mendeley along with allowing bulk PDF importing, and it allows for customizable extraction forms and easy population of your risk of bias tables. In this workshop, we will go over how to create and set up a review along with going over the steps in completing your review using Covidence.

Join us to learn how to leverage Covidence to efficiently conduct your reviews.

Open to Vanderbilt faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdocs.
