Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research
The Gerstein Science Information Centre at the University of Toronto recently organised a seminar focusing on achieving quality and transparency when conducting scoping or systematic reviews. The seminar aimed to help students, researchers and faculty to adhere to the latest protocols and reporting guidelines, maintain research transparency and reproducibility and align data management within research studies.
The seminar is part of a wider library initiative, in collaboration with the EQUATOR Network, to raise awareness of reporting guidelines and to help researchers and faculty to improve the quality, completeness and transparency of their research studies.
