    user17471: It would be great if we could see the potential duplicates side by side rather than 'stacked' so you have to scroll to compare them. Or  there could be an expand option in the top article list box, where you see the titles, dates and authors of both potential duplicates, as this will be sufficient to resolve many.

    user27446: is there a way to label or delete a duplicate in the system that has not been detected?

    You can simply put a label saying this is a duplicate. But there is no way to delete duplicates not detected by the Rayyan's algorithm. Note that these labels will only be seen by other collaborators if the blind is off. Blinding blocks labels and notes from view as part of the effort to minimize risk of bias.

    user28862: Hi,

    I don't understand what is 'n' exact matches. I saw your explanation above but it is still unclear for me. Can you help me ? maybe by giving me an example ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Gilles,

    It simply means that in the file(s) that you have uploaded to Rayyan the same exact reference was repeated n times. If I upload a file with two references

    user16066: Hi,

    I have some troubles with duplicates. Indeed, I uploaded my files but the special icon beside each article that marks the records as possible duplicates doesn't appear. Therefore, I don't see neither the delete nor the resolve button.

    Please, can you help me?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    In that case, it's possible that Rayyan wasn't able to detect any duplicates.

    Is there a way to delete all duplicates at once instead of checking them one by one?

    Thanks!
