Reporting guidelines for animal research

The EQUATOR Network reporting guideline database is primarily focused on human health and as such we do not comprehensively search for veterinary or animal-related pre-clinical research reporting guidelines.

When conducting our comprehensive literature searches for reporting guidelines we do, however, come across guidelines specifically for reporting veterinary or animal research and we thought that it would be useful to provide a direct link to those that we have found. Please see the link below.

Veterinary or animal research-related reporting guidelines
