Covidence is an easy-to-use support tool that can guide you through the Systematic Review process.  Consider using the program for any type of literature review project.

The Penn Libraries makes available this web-based program to all current Penn faculty, staff, and students. Our site license allows you to create an account and develop an unlimited number of projects. After creating a project, any number of participants (including those outside Penn) can be invited to participate.

This review support tool can help you:

  • import journal citations from multiple databases or citation management tools
  • deduplicate citations automatically
  • screen studies for inclusion/exclusion
  • upload PDFs
  • extract data from a study and assess the quality of the study.

The Library has created a guide that provides an overview of the program. Please access the guide to learn more about creating an account affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania.
