Importing References

Covidence works seamlessly with your favorite reference managers like EndNote, RefWorks, or any tool that supports RIS, CSV, or PubMed XML formats.

From your review homepage, select Import.


For a new review, import references into the Screen section, since you will be starting with title and abstract screening.


Covidence will automatically remove duplicates.


Covidence will track the numbers needed for your PRISMA flow diagram.


If you have already completed the title and abstract screen, and are now importing references that you identified through hand searching, import those references into the full-text review section.
