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!”
“It’s totally ace and I’m pleased to see this development where you can do screening in duplicate. It’s so intuitive you don’t really need the user guide. I’ve done several reviews and one of the worst parts is matching the inclusion/exclusion decisions between review authors to decide what references to retrieve – this couldn’t be easier thanks to Rayyan.”

Rayyan is really helpful, I am very interested in it and believe it can be used for automation of daily/weekly/monthly updating the database.
