Enhancing the Rigour of Reporting of Randomized Trials and Systematic Reviews

Knowing that properly documented analytic methods and findings improve transparency and contribute to improving the quality of biomedical publications describing randomised trials and systematic reviews, guidelines exist to facilitate complete reporting (such as CONSORT, SPIRIT, SAMPL, PRISMA, and PRISMA-P).

This overview article (published in Evidence-Based Mental Health) summarises aspects of statistical reporting in trials and systematic reviews of health interventions. The objective was to enhance familiarity of statistical details that should be reported. Considerations regarding sharing of study data and statistical code are also addressed.
