At the moment Covidence only supports a Risk of Bias assessment version 1.0. You will be asked to either start with the standard Cochrane Risk of Bias domains or you will be able to define a custom set of domains. The Cochrane Risk of Bias domains will include; sequence generation, allocation concealment, blinding of participants and personnel, blinding of outcome assessment, incomplete outcome data, selective outcome reporting and ‘other issues’.

The domains that you define for the first study you assess in a review will be used as the template for all the other studies in your review.  So, each subsequent assessment will have the same list of domains as the first assessment. You can still customize each study independently. Please note that changes later made to the 'Review Template' do not retroactively apply to extraction forms which have already been opened/created. 

When exporting the result we will aggregate the data for all of the domains defined in your review.
