Rayyan for Systematic and Scoping Reviews

Resolving Conflicts

Inclusion/exclusion decisions will be displayed on the top of the left panel. 

During the screening process, blinding should be on. Each reviewer can only see their inclusion/exclusion decisions. To resolve conflicts, blinding should be turned on (which can only be done be the creator of the review). 

Once blinding is turned off, reviewers can see the articles in which there is disagreement by clicking on "conflict" in the left hand panel. 

Rayyan will then display the conflicting articles in the main screen making it easy for reviewers to change their response.


In practice conflict resolution involves a conversation between reviewers or asking another reviewer to break a tie.
