Reporting Guidelines

  • The EQUATOR Network
    The EQUATOR Network website is a resource centre for good reporting of health research studies
  • Systematic reviews of randomised controlled trials
    PRISMA (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses) is an evidence-based minimum set of items for reporting in systematic reviewsand meta-analyses.
  • Systematic reviews of observational studies
    MOOSE (Meta-analysis Of Observational Studies in Epidemiology) is a guideline for reporting systematic reviews and meta-analyses of observational studies.
  • Randomised controlled trials
    CONSORT (Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) includes various initiatives developed by the CONSORT Group to alleviate the problems arising from inadequate reporting of randomized controlled trials (RCTs).

    STROBE (STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology).
  • Diagnostic accuracy studies
    STARD (STAndards for the Reporting of Diagnostic accuracy studies) aims to improve the accuracy and completeness of reporting of studies of diagnostic accuracy.

EBM Tools/Evaluation checklists

  • EBM Toolkit
    includes useful information and resources related to the key steps of EBHC
  • SUPPORT Summaries
    The SUPPORT Collaboration is searching global databases for systematic reviews of maternal and child health interventions, and of ways to effectively organise, finance and govern the delivery of effective interventions. To make this information more accessible to policymakers and other stakeholders we are preparing structured summaries of relevant reviews.
  • PRISMA Statement
    PRISMA is an EBM minimum set of items for reporting in systematic reviews and meta-analyses. PRISMA stands for Preferred Reporting Items for Systematicthis Reviews and Meta-Analyses. The aim of the PRISMA Statement is to help authors improve the reporting of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
