Data management for Systematic Reviews using Covidence

August 25, 2020 @ 12:00 am - August 28, 2020 @ 11:59 pm

Systematic reviews handle large volumes of data. Managing them is challenging for even experienced reviewers. Software designed for this can be of immense help. Covidence is one such software

Data management using Covidence for Systematic Reviews streamlines the process of conducting systematic review . It enables  review authors to upload all the relevant studies identified through searching various databases. This tool supports the  to management of  these references from the beginning stage of review production (screening for potential eligible studies)  till creating the PRISMA flow diagram and data extraction.

Due to the prevailing situation we at the centre are planning to teach the use of Covidence online.

The workshop will provide a detail walk-through of the tool and time for questions.
