Copying studies and data between reviews

You can copy a study from one review to another, including all references, study characteristics and the risk of bias table. Note that only those risk of bias items that are active in the target review will be transferred.

You can also copy study data rows, outcomes or whole comparisons. You should first have copied all relevant studies, otherwise any studies missing from the target review will be created as blanks.

Note that when you paste into the target review this must be at the parent level (see video below for example).

To copy a study to another review:

  1. Right-click the study that you want to copy and choose Copy.

  2. Open the target review.

  3. Right-click the Included Studies heading and choose Paste.




To copy a comparison with all data to another review:

  1. Right-click the comparison that you want to copy and choose Copy.

  2. Open the target review.

  3. Right-click the Data and Analyses heading and choose Paste.
