Once the consensus form has been completed, you can export your extracted data to RevMan or to a CSV file. If consensus is not completed and a judgement made in each domain and outcome, exported files will appear blank.

Machine readable CSV

What's a "Machine readable CSV"??

This export format puts all of your consensus extracted data from all studies into one single spreadsheet. Each row contains the information for a study and intervention. The goal of this format is to facilitate import of data extracted in Covidence into statistical programs such as Stata, R, or SPSS.

 

How to export

  1. Go to the Export studies tool, accessible from your review summary page.
  2. Select "Extracted data" from the "Category" dropdown menu.
  3. Select "CSV (Machine readable)".
  4. Click "Export".
  5. Wait for the file to prepare, then click Download.
  6. Save and open your downloaded file in Excel, or in your preferred CSV-reader program.

 

 

Human readable XLS

This export format puts all extracted data from each study into a sheet in an Excel spreadsheet (.xls). Each sheet has section headings similar to those in the Covidence extraction form. The consensus data will be displayed at the top of each sheet, followed by each of the reviewers' individually extracted data.
