Subjects covered

When doing systematic reviews or other comprehensive types of literature reviews the amount of articles you have to screen for relevance is usually daunting. There is no one way to do the screening, but the screening program and application Rayyan offers a free and easy solution, available both offline and online.

In Rayyan, two people can review the same references independently (blinded). When both have finished, you can turn off the blinding and discuss and resolve any discrepancies.

Rayyan enables you to do your screening either on your computer, your tablet, your smart phone or a combination of these at your convenience. Sign up for this practical and pedagogical two hour workshop in using Rayyan to make your review come along just a bit smoother.


Laptop. Attendants should have an account in Rayyan. Sign up here. Please note that this should be done a few days before the workshop to ensure that your account is approved in time for the workshop.

Target audience

Anyone involved in or planning to be involved in making systematic reviews or other reviews.
