Review Manager (RevMan)
RevMan 5 download and installation

The present RevMan version 5.2 was released at the end of 2012. It includes numerous important changes for Diagnostic Test Accuracy (DTA) reviews, the central one being support for the new QUADAS-2 tool. Other improvements for all users include:

  • Published PDF Preview: Previously only available through Archie, this lets you see how the PDF version of the review will look when published. This is especially useful if you have large or complex tables in the review.
  • Extra validation of references to Cochrane Reviews: This connects to Archie to check the details of each cited review. Because of the connection requirement it is only done when you run the Validation Report, not continuously as part of Validate As You Type.
