“Rayyan is a great software made to perform Meta-analysis and has just made this process SO much easier!”
“It's part of my job to help researchers do systematic reviews, so I'm often recommending Rayyan. It's free and has some good functionality.

“Rayyan is responsive, intuitive, and free. It can be used with research volunteers and seasoned professionals alike. Blinding is easy and effective, I can see how far my other screeners have progressed and the level of agreement without seeing what they have done. This can be used to compete to finish quickly or it can send a signal that there is little agreement. ”

But he found it easy to use Rayyan and was quickly able to include and exclude the reviews. Thank you for such a great tool!”
