Systematic Reviews 101: Current Trends in Evidence Synthesis

Systematic Reviews 101: Current Trends in Evidence Synthesis

Learn about the University Libraries' newest systematic review tool, Covidence. Using this software, you will learn how to import citations; perform reviews; tag and categorize results; upload full-text PDFs; use built-in or custom tools to assess reference quality and bias; extract data; customize forms; and export final review data. We will also discuss the ways in which Covidence can facilitate collaboration in your team. Covidence is useful for evidence synthesis projects as well as other review approaches. Whether you’re planning to use Covidence for your review, or still determining if this software supports your research goals, this session is open to researchers of all levels of experience and familiarity.

[Systematic Reviews Workshop Series #1 or #6 of 6 -- attend as a one-off or as part of this series of workshops to develop skills and use tools available to assist with conducting comprehensive literature reviews.]
