UM faculty and students now have free, unlimited access to Covidence.

University of Manitoba Libraries is pleased to announce that we have purchased an institutional subscription to Covidence, a web-based software platform that streamlines the production of systematic reviews.

Covidence supports citation screening, full text review, risk of bias assessment, extraction of study characteristics and outcomes, and the export of data and references.


Support will be provided primarily through Covidence.
