Screening by title and abstract

Once you have imported your references into Covidence you're ready to start screening.

To screen by title and abstract click the Screen tab.  Make your decision by clicking on the Yes, Maybe or No buttons for each reference.

What you see when you submit your vote will depend on what your vote was and how many people are required to vote on each study during the screening phase.  By default, a new review within Covidence is setup in dual screening mode. In dual screening mode another reviewer will have to vote before your study is moved to the next step.


When in dual screening mode, two Maybe votes will move a reference into full-text screening.
