Rayyan for Systematic and Scoping Reviews

Importing Records

After creating your account you will be prompted to import records into your Rayyan review. Use the "Select files" to choose the records you would like to import.


Rayyan is compatible with several text formats including, but not limited to:

  • EndNote Export (.enw)
  • RIS (Zotero, EndNote, Mendeley, and others)
  • CVS
  • BibTeX
  • PubMed XML
  • New PubMed Format (.nbib)
  • Web of Science (.ciw)

Rayyan does have a deduplication feature, but it is very limited. We highly recommend that you import records into a citation management program (eg EndNote or Zotero) and deduplicate records there before importing into Rayyan.
