RIS File import to Zotero - Not all files importing


So I have a RIS file from EBSCO which should have 912 items. When importing into Zotero only 717 items were transferred. Does Zotero automatically remove duplicates? It seems unlikely there would be that many duplicates but I'm using Academic Search Complete, CINAHL Complete, Medline, PsycArticle & PsycInfo so it's possible I guess.

Just trying to figure out if this is an issue to the file transfer or not.
  • I think I have it figured out...maybe.

    After posting, I went back to EBSCO and scrolled through all the pages (there were 15). When I got to page 15, EBSCO had a note at the top which said 'ALL Duplicates Removed'. I had 727 records.

    Apparently, EBSCO is automatically removing the duplicates it notices.

    That being said, I went through all the records in Zotero and removed an additional 81 duplicates and then when I imported everything to Covidence, another 7 duplicates were removed leaving me with 639 records; from a search that initially yielded 912.
