Exporting References from PubMed:
1. Start at PubMed and complete your search
2. Save the desired citations to your clipboard and access the clipboard contents
2. Click on Save
3. Select Format >> PubMed >> Create file
This should automatically create and download a file that you can then import directly into your review in Covidence.
To import references to your review:
Once your file is uploaded, you'll be re-directed to your Review Summary page. From here you can monitor the progress of your import, as shown below.
Once you’ve successfully imported your file into Covidence, it’s best to check your import. To do this, go back to the Import studies tool >> Import History page. Here you can see those references that Covidence has automatically detected as duplicate or studified record. If your import appears to have fewer references than expected, check for duplicates, and for references that have been associated into a single study, as this is likely the cause!
Note: All reviews created under the institutional license will be visible to the administrators of the ZSOM/Northwell Covidence license.
