Covidence is a cloud-based tool to streamline the process of reviewing titles and abstracts for large-scale literature reviews enabling you to:
Be sure to save changes made under these tabs!
Review Settings -> Edit the title of your review and change the number of reviewers (note: systematic review guidelines require 2 reviewers).
Reviewers -> Invite additional team members (reviewers will need to accept the invitation in their email in order for the review to appear in their My Reviews list; reviewers do not need to be affiliated with Mayo Clinic to join the team).
Team Settings -> Control which reviewers are assigned to screen studies or resolve conflicts and track progress of each reviewer.
Criteria & Exclusion Reasons -> Create list of inclusion criteria for title and abstract screening (may also manage exclusion reasons with customized drop-down list of exclusion criteria for use during the full text review). Additionally, keywords may be added to highlight certain words that could indicate inclusion or exclusion.
Study Tags -> Covidence is pre-populated with 2 tags: Ongoing Study & Awaiting Classification. Additional tags may be added and used to quickly filter references. Tags are visible by other team members.
