Covidence is a web-based platform that streamlines the process of conducting a comprehensive literature review.

How do I export references?

When you've completed screening at Title & abstract or Full text review stage, you can export inter-rater reliability (IRR) data:

Step 1. From the "Review Summary" page select the button labeled "Export"


Step 2.
 Select the option you wish to export and choose to export a CSV file containing IRR data for Title & abstract or Full text review.


Note: Quality assessments of included studies in your review can export either to CSV or to RevMan 5.


For more information, please refer to Covidence’s Export support page which includes further detailed information on:

  • Exporting study lists to your reference manager
  • Exporting inter-rater reliability data
  • Exporting quality assessments to Excel
  • Exporting extracted data to Excel
  • Exporting and interpreting PRISMA
  • Exporting studies to RevMan
