Dalhousie Libraries is pleased to offer an institutional subscription to Covidence systematic review management software.
Covidence is a productivity tool developed with the aim of making the conduct of systematic reviews faster, easier, and more enjoyable! Covidence is a not-for-profit service that started in Australia and is now partnering with the Cochrane Collaboration to assist reviewers around the world.
This review productivity tool is now available for all Dalhousie affiliates and can be used for knowledge synthesis projects in any discipline, such as systematic or scoping reviews, or less formal reviews such as those for assignments or other projects. Citation lists can be easily imported from citation databases, such as PubMed, Scopus, etc., or from citation management software, such as RefWorks or EndNote. More information about using this tool can be found on the Covidence Knowledge Base.
Dalhousie’s subscription permits unlimited reviews for any Dalhousie-affiliated user. Any reviews created or migrated to the Dalhousie University Library account will have access to the full functionality of the software, including unlimited reviewers, and online support from Covidence’s technical support. If you have existing reviews under a personal Dalhousie or non-Dalhousie account and you would like information on migration to the Dalhousie site license, go to our Covidence page or contact email@example.com.
The software is secure and fully online, so there is no need to download anything and it is accessible from mobile devices through the browser function.
A good place to start with instructions on joining the Dalhousie University Libraries account, in addition to the Dalhousie’s Knowledge Base page, is the Covidence page of the Systematic Review: A How-To Guide.
For more information or support in using Covidence, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be put in touch with the librarians at the Kellogg Health Sciences Library.
