Moving data from Covidence to RevMan – the advantages of a standardised data package


Covidence is one of Cochrane’s recommended tools and can accelerate production of your reviews by enabling you to rapidly screen abstracts and full text before extracting study data. But how do you get that study data into RevMan Web to perform meta analyses and report the results?

In this Cochrane Learning Live webinar, the presenters covered how study data and references can be imported into RevMan Web from Covidence. The session looked at the structure in which study data is imported into RevMan, and how this might be populated manually or by other tools in the review production ecosystem.

This webinar was aimed at any review author who wants to learn how to get extracted study data into RevMan Web with speed and accuracy. It's also for anyone interested in the potential for study data reuse and the value of a standardised data package in this space.

The session was delivered in February 2024 and below you will find the videos from the webinar, together with the accompanying slides to download [PDF].
