This webinar will show participants how to use Plot Digitizer software for extracting data from figures.
The webinar is presented by Professor Livia Puljak from the University of Split School of Medicine in Split, Croatia, and will be of interest to anyone planning to conduct or currently conducting a systematic review.
Prof Puljak will report on two published studies, which indicated that very few Cochrane protocols plan how will they extract data found only in figures, and proved that data extraction with software, compared to manual data extraction, is a faster and more accurate approach.
