CRS

Tell us what you need.
Start with a short label and then a fuller description. If you can, try to include a ‘user story’ as the first line of the description. A user story is about clearly telling is who you are, what you want and why you need it.

How can we improve CRS?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Linking reference to studies

    We have a number of features in CRS-W that highlight things to do, e.g. duplicates, errors etc. It might be nice to add an option where CRS identifies references that might be part of a study. A couple of simple algorithms that identified possible links that we could quickly check, e.g. if a record has a trials registry number, and a study has the same number; if two references have the same trial registry number (create a new study); if the matching already done by CRS to identify additional references in reviews as being part of another study were also…

    • CRS-Web development and Covidence development are they in tandem?

      How closely is the development of CRS-Web being matched to the functionality and development of Covidence to make sure that the two softwares 'speak to each other' as efficiently as possible? eg when references are marked for full-text screening in Covidence can this be automatically picked up in CRS-Web? There is a real chance to maximise efficiency here lets make sure we make the most of this opportunity?

      • CRSO - search functionality

        It would be nice to be able to shorten a combination search of various search lines in CRSO like in Ovid:

        So, instead of

        #31 OR #32 OR #33 OR #34 OR #35 OR #36 OR #37 OR #38

        I would like to be able to do

        OR #31-#38

                                        I want to print the de-duplication list to compare the records so that I can have a paper record of the references I have merged.
