Covidence is an online Systematic Review program developed by, and for, Systematic Reviewers. It can import citations from reference managers like EndNote, facilitate the screening of abstracts and full-text, populate risk of bias tables, assist with data extraction, and export to all common formats.

How to join University of Canberra’s Covidence institutional license:
  1. Go to
  2. Enter your information (using your OR email address) and click “Request Invitation” link
  3. Accept the invitation in your email
  4. Log in to your existing Covidence account or sign up for a new account
  5. If you have already joined the University of Canberra’s Covidence account, then you can log into Covidence with your email and password.
Creating a review using the University of Canberra’s unlimited license

After clicking the link “Create new review” you will have the option to use your personal account license or select the University of Canberra’s account.

Reviews created under the institutional license will be visible to the administrators of the University of Canberra Libraries Covidence account. Your personal account review(s) will only be seen by you.

NB: Our annual subscription fee for Covidence is based on the number of new reviews, so please do not create Test/Practice reviews.  Instead, refer to the Knowledge Base or generate a demo review; both are located near the sign in at the top of the page.
