University of Ottawa Library now has an institutional subscription to Covidence, a web-based software platform that streamlines the production of systematic reviews. It should be noted that, while Covidence specifically mentions systematic reviews, it has also been used for comprehensive literature reviews, scoping reviews, meta-syntheses, meta-narratives, and other types of literature reviews. It can also be used for any discipline including health sciences, medicine, social sciences, environmental sciences, biology, management, education, and so forth.
