About Rayyan

Rayyan is a free, web-based tool that lets you screen your references for systematic reviews or other large literature reviews. Rayyan facilitates collaboration by allowing multiple people to screen the same references independently (blinded). You can use Rayyan after you have performed your literature search and collected the results in EndNote or Zotero.
