Systematic Review & Covidence Workshop In-Person

Join us for a two-hour workshop on Tuesday October 4th from 1-3 pm at the Digital Commons to learn the steps of a systematic review and how to leverage the Covidence* software to efficiently conduct your review. In this hands-on workshop, we will spend the first hour learning and practicing the steps of developing a systematic review. During the second hour, you will learn how to use the Covidence software to efficiently screen citations, extract data, and perform quality assessment.

Workshop Goals

  • Increase participants’ confidence and knowledge of systematic reviews
  • Learn how to use Covidence to create and manage systematic reviews
  • Identify ways participants’ can use their new knowledge and skills for their research projects

All levels of experience are welcome!


*Covidence is a web-based tool that can be used to conduct your reviews more efficiently. It 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, and it allows for customizable extraction forms and easy population of your risk of bias tables.
