Better, Faster: An Introduction to Systematic Review Automation Tools (Recording)

In this webinar, you will learn about a range of free systematic review automation (SRA) tools that can improve the speed and quality of your reviews.

These tools assist you with multiple time-consuming systematic review tasks: 1) developing the systematic review protocol; 2) designing and running searches; 3) screening search results; 4) obtaining full texts; 5) assessing study quality; and 6) writing the methods and results sections of the review manuscript.

You’ll learn about and view demonstrations of each tool and you’ll leave the webinar being able to demonstrate and begin to use the tools.

This course is an approved elective for Level I of the Systematic Review Services Specialization.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Advise teams on the selection of appropriate systematic review software

  • Demonstrate the SRA tools to researchers

  • Begin using the tools in their own daily practice
