Background: Covidence is Cochrane’s online systematic review production platform, improving the efficiency and experience of producing systematic reviews. The tool supports importation and de-duplication of citations; screening of titles, abstracts and full texts; risk of bias assessment; data extraction; and exportation of data into Review Manager 5 software.

Objective: to familiarize new Spanish-speaking users with the features of Covidence, Cochrane’s recommended online tool for review production.

Description: the workshop, completely in Spanish, will give a hands-on opportunity to get to know Covidence and the support team. We will start with a real-time demonstration of Covidence's features, with opportunities for specific questions after presenting each area of the tool. Following this, we will provide information on support, including an indication of materials available for trainers and editors. The second half of the workshop will wrap up with time for questions and an opportunity for participants to use Covidence with the presenter available for one-to-one guidance.

Participants should bring a laptop or arrange to share in order to get a hands-on experience of using Covidence.
