Covidence is a web-based system that streamlines the systematic review process.
Available to Cleveland Clinic caregivers via an institutional subscription.
- Citations are imported into Covidence from EndNote, Mendeley, or Zotero.
- Review members are invited to join the project and the team creates inclusion/exclusion criteria and study tags.
- Covidence guides each member through: initial screening of titles/abstracts, full text review, quality assessment, data extraction, and exporting review data and generates an up-to-date PRISMA flow diagram to document each step.
