Reporting guidelines under development
The following guidelines are currently being developed:
- PRISMA-P (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-analyses Protocols)
- Guidelines for reporting the impact of patient and public involvement in research
- Guidelines for the reporting of prognostic (risk prediction) models
- Guidelines for reporting biomedical images in scientific journals
- REporting Manualised INterventions for Dissemination and Evaluation (REMINDE) Statement
- CONSORT extension for reporting randomised controlled trials of social interventions
- CENT (CONSORT Extension for N-of-1 Trials)
- The REporting of studies Conducted using Observational Routinely-collected Data (RECORD) statement
- STROBE checklist for conference abstracts
- CIRCLe SMT project (Consensus on Interventions Reporting Criteria List Spinal Manipulative Therapy)
- STROBE-RDS (Reporting guidelines for Respondent Driven Sampling studies)
- CAse REporting guidelines
- Consolidated Health Economic Evaluation Reporting Standards – CHEERS: A Report of the ISPOR Health Economic Evaluation Publications Guidelines Task Force
- Guideline for reporting evidence based practice educational interventions and teaching (GREET) statement
- Guidelines for the Reporting of Neuro-Epidemiological Studies
PRISMA-P extends the PRISMA Statement to provide guidance for optimal reporting of systematic review protocols. A consensus meeting was held in June 2011 and the guidance is expected to be available on EQUATOR in 2012.

An official extension of the CONSORT 2010 Statement is underway for reporting N-of-1 trials. This guidance provides a set of essential items to include when preparing reports of prospectively planned, multiple crossover single patient trials, which may or may not be randomized. The CENT guidance is expected to become available in late 2012.

On October 17th and 18th of 2012, 19 individuals met for a consensus meeting at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA to develop CAse REporting guidelines: The C.A.R.E. guidelines. We are currently finalizing the checklist and associated manuscripts for publication. Please contact Joel J. Gagnier (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David Riley (email@example.com) for any further information.
