NLM Offers Research Reporting Guidelines and Initiatives

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has put together a new web page: Research Reporting Guidelines and Initiatives: By Organization. It provides, in chart format, guidelines for reporting the results of research in several biomedical disciplines.

These guidelines and initiatives usually “specify a minimum set of items required for a clear and transparent account of what was done and what was found in a research study, reflecting, in particular, issues that might introduce bias into the research” (wording adapted from the EQUATOR Network Resource Centre).

The chart is organized alphabetically by organization and covers AMA, ASSERT, CDISC, COPE, ICMJE, INANE, STROBE and more. Links to each organization are provided (when available) as well as a description of the organization or guideline. Access to the chart is available here and also via the Topic-Specific Query Link on the PubMed home page.
