Covidence provides guided online software for streamlining evidence synthesis, such as systematic reviews, scoping reviews, and gap maps. This software works with citation managers such as Zotero and Endnote, allowing users to filter studies with machine learning or record screening and voting records per studies. Covidence also screens abstracts and full text, creates risk of bias tables, and exports results to common statistical packages. 

To sign up for this trial, email Librarian Claire Curry with your name and ou.edu email address. The OU community has unlimited access and reviews during this trial period, but user accounts must be set up manually by invitation.
