Doing a Systematic Review?
Before you embark on a systematic review, please understand that this could easily be a one year or more project.
UC Berkeley licenses Covidence, a tool to help you with your systematic reviews.
In Covidence, you can import citations, screen titles and abstracts, upload references, screen full text, create forms for critical appraisal, perform risk of bias tables, complete data extraction, and export a PRISMA flowchart summarizing your review process. As an institutional member, our users have priority access to Covidence support. To access Covidence using the UC Berkeley institutional account, start at this page and follow the instructions.
