Number 1A world-class systematic review management system

I'm in the early days of setting up a more robust systematic review service

Covidence gives you a clear overview of the systematic reviews that are happening in your institution and the people involved in them. This means, at any time, you can assess the quality of the question and search criteria of a review as well as the team's progress.

I’ve got a handle on things, and I’m now ready to scale and optimize my service

Covidence provides you with the information you need to understand what teams are doing, how efficiently they’re working, when they’re stuck and how best to help. Over time, you can learn and continually improve your methods, efficiency, and overall quality of research being produced by your institution.

Number 2I love the premium, ongoing support

Enjoy a premium level of support with:

  • Expert systematic reviewers available to answer difficult questions
  • Access to Cochrane interactive learning, the gold-standard in systematic review methodology, to help upskill you and your team
  • A curated selection of branded marketing collateral to help you promote the use of Covidence internally. The more reviews using Covidence, the more in-control you are.
  • 3 personal online training webinars per year

Covidence has been a game changer for our systematic review service. Our researchers love Covidence - and so do we. In addition to using the tool for the systematic review process, our librarians use it to monitor active reviews. Covidence allows us to know where in the process each research team is, which members are most active, and whether the team may require a friendly prompt. We can also see if teams are sticking to their established methodology for inclusion/exclusion. Before Covidence, we were often in the dark on a review’s progress. Covidence has switched on the light.

Technology is disrupting every facet of the way we live our lives and the services that a library provides is no exception. Automation, Machine Learning, AI aren’t just buzzwords any more, they’re real and they’re here now.

Covidence is at the forefront of this technology, working in close partnership with Cochrane so you can trust the technology we develop will be acceptable to the global evidence-based practice community and to journal peer reviewers. We’re already applying many of the principles of automation to the way we’re evolving the software. We’re ready. This means you are too.
