Reporting Guidelines for Studies
Posted On: Friday, April 26, 2019 - 12:34 by Sarah Cantrell

The EQUATOR Network has helpfully gathered these reporting guidelines all in one convenient location and includes reporting guidelines for case reports (CARE), quality improvement studies (SRQR), observational studies (STROBE), randomized controlled trials (CONSORT), and systematic reviews (PRISMA), among others....
