Who should attend?

Researchers involved in producing systematic reviews; Individuals providing infrastructure support to the production of systematic reviews.


YHEC, in association with the Systematic Review Toolbox, are running a workshop at the University of York to provide an overview of selected software tools currently available to support the production of systematic reviews.

Systematic reviews can be time consuming, logistically challenging and labour intensive. These and other challenges have led to the development of various special-purpose software tools to support the systematic review production process. Such tools extend beyond the scope of more established general-purpose systems (e.g. reference managers, word processors and spreadsheet packages), which are already in wide use and, instead, aim to provide tailored support for particular review activities or the whole systematic review production process.

This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn about special-purpose software tools currently available to support systematic reviews and to share experiences of using software in practice. The workshop will examine and provide hands-on with both commercial and not-for-profit systematic review management packages (including Covidence, DistillerSR and EPPI-Reviewer), as well as a range of free and commercial tools to tackle single tasks within the systematic review process (such as Rayyan, RobotReviewer and SWIFT-Review).

The workshop will be led by Dr Chris Marshall, the editor and developer of a community-driven web-based catalogue of systematic review tools, the Systematic Review Toolbox.

This workshop complements our Advanced Search Techniques For Systematic Reviews, Health Technology Assessment and Guideline Development Training course and the Advanced Search Strategy Design for Complex Topics: Strategy Development, Text Analytics and Text Mining course.


Early bird price is £200 plus £40 VAT if booked before 04 September, otherwise it will be £250 plus £50 VAT. Also, if booked alongside the Advanced Search Techniques for Systematic Reviews, Health Technology Assessment & Guideline Development and the Advanced Search Techniques for Systematic Reviews, Health Technology Assessment & Guideline Development, you will receive a 10% discount on a 2 day course or 15% discount if you book all 3 courses together.
