Hayley Tyrer reviews Guidelines for Reporting Health Research on the BioMed Central blog network:

I found the book to be well written and chapters could easily be read as stand-alone items if required, due to each chapter dealing with a single guideline or idea… On a personal level, I found the included examples illustrating good and bad reporting versus good and bad conduct, particularly useful. The closing chapters outlining how to report statistical analyses within research manuscripts and tips for the presentation of figures and clinical images in scientific manuscripts were also excellent.

Philip M. Jones reviews Guidelines for Reporting Health Research for the Canadian Journal of Anesthesia:

Although this book is suitable for all researchers, it will have the most impact on researchers who use a variety of study designs in their investigations… Journal editors, editorial board members, and publishers would all benefit from keeping a copy of this book on hand. Finally, trainees interested in clinical research would benefit from reading this book from cover to cover as it will help them acquire a firm understanding of the best reporting practices for most types of clinical research.
