Screening Results

Screening is a two-part process in which you determine whether each individual article meets your inclusion criteria, and therefore should be included in your review. To reduce bias, you should have a minimum of two reviewers to screen (yourself and someone else from your team)

Results can be exported from databases often in RIS format directly into Reference Management and Systematic Review tools.

Screen by: Title/Abstract of Article

Screen using: Inclusion/Exclusion criteria,

Articles should be screened by two or more researchers, independently and in duplicate
