Covidence was designed by researchers familiar with the systematic review process to make conducting reviews more efficient. It is a web-based tool that 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. It also allows for customizable extraction forms and easy population of your risk of bias tables.
Covidence offers monthly training webinars (registration required). Vanderbilt University Libraries will also be offering a training session in the upcoming months, stay tuned for the date and time. You can also check out the Getting Started with Covidence page to explore the various features.
