How many keywords should be used in screening? Any limitation?

The number of inclusion and exclusion keywords that you use may vary depending on the project, but there is no maximum number of inclusion or exclusion keywords. Keywords are used to draw your eye to important words in titles and abstracts as you are screening, but keywords are not directly used by the machine learning, therefore, how many (if any) keywords you use will not impact the machine learning performance.
