Reporting guidelines in other research fields
The EQUATOR Steering Group has broadened the remit of reporting guidelines included on our website and created a special page for reporting guidelines from other research fields.
The EQUATOR team does not have capacity nor expertise for comprehensive searches of literature from all research fields and this additional special page will not represent a comprehensive collection of all available guidelines as we try to achieve with the guidelines closely relating to the reporting health research.
