Abstract

Abstract:

Objective: To highlight lesser known and useful features of Covidence for intermediate users.

Description: Covidence is Cochrane’s new online systematic review production platform, improving the efficiency and experience of producing systematic reviews. Covidence supports import and de-duplication of citations, title and abstract and full text screening, risk-of-bias assessment and data extraction, and export of data directly into the relevant review in RevMan.

The workshop will be an opportunity for intermediate users of the tool to get a more in-depth demonstration of creative ways to use Covidence. We will also share some of the long-term goals of Covidence, and conclude by asking users for their input on features they would like to see built in the future.

Participants should bring a laptop or arrange to share in order to have hands-on experience of using Covidence.
