The EQUATOR Network: facilitating transparent and accurate reporting of medical research

Click on the title above for more information:

The EQUATOR Network is a new quality improvement initiative that seeks to enhance reliability of medical research literature by promoting transparent and accurate reporting of health research.
That goal will be achieved through:

  • raising awareness of the crucial importance of good reporting of research
  • becoming the recognised global centre providing resources and training relating to the reporting of health research and use of reporting guidelines
  • assisting in the development, dissemination and implementation of reporting guidelines
  • monitoring the status of the quality of reporting across health research literature
  • conducting research relating to the quality of reporting
