What is Covidence?

Covidence is an online tool that streamlines parts of the systematic review process. It makes it easy to screen references (both title/abstract and full-text), create and populate data extraction forms, and complete your risk of bias tables. You can also divide up the work among your team of reviewers, and track the progress of the project.

Adding Collaborators

Once you've created a review in Covidence, you can invite others to join the project and participate as reviewers. Your collaborators do not need to be affiliated with GW in order to participate in your review.
