Our clients screen over 50,000 references every day – over 4 million in total to date – and have completed thousands of reviews using our software. We’re often asked about citing the use of Distiller in publications and presentations, so we put together the following guidelines and examples.

If you wish to note the use of DistillerSR in a publication or if you wish to include screen captures of DistillerSR, we suggest using the style outlined in the AMA 11th edition:

Name of Software. Version #. Org/company; Year. Accessed Date [insert access date]. Web address.


DistillerSR. Version 2.35. DistillerSR Inc.; 2022. Accessed May-June 2022.

More Examples:

“Screening and data extraction was completed using DistillerSR (DistillerSR. Version 2.35. DistillerSR Inc.; 2022. Accessed May-June 2022.”

“Forms were created using web-based systematic review software (DistillerSR. Version 2.35. DistillerSR Inc.; 2022. Accessed May-June 2022.”
