"I love you @Covidence. I love the YouTube series Covidence put out and my librarian is my hero. Let others help you and be careful when you set Inclusion and exclusion as to when you want to adhere to it at what stage as some information may be more visible in full-text review."

"Big fan of using @Covidence for conducting systematic reviews - this is my first systematic review I'm leading from start to finish, and hard to see myself using another platform. Step by step, organised, and very user-friendly."

"Second using Covidence. It's great for the abstract and full text review. Also helps you track rationale for removal which is needed in the methods"
