Systematic review management software tools:

Rayyan is a free web-based platform for the screening stages of a review, as well as deduplication. It includes useful tagging and term highlighting features.

  • SysRev

    SysRev is a relatively new tool for screening and data extraction. It offers a highly customizable data extraction feature. SysRev's free version is useful for most reviews, and a paid version offers additional features.

  • Covidence

    Covidence is a user-friendly platform for deduplication, title/abstract and full text screening. It also has a data extraction feature useful for more standard Cochrane-type reviews. The free version is fairly limited, and thus teams may need to purchase a subscription.

  • DistillerSR

    DistillerSR aims to support all stages of the review process from search to reporting. It includes automation features. Access to this platform is only available through a paid subscription.
