"Written by the original guideline authors, the book essentially presents and summarizes the various research reporting guidelines developed over the years in an effort to promote best practices in research reporting." (Springer Nature, 2016) "In Guidelines for Reporting Health Research: A User s Manual, the book s editors, in association with the EQUATOR (Enhancing the QUAlity and Transparency Of health Research) network ( and over 60 individual contributors, present a collection of respected and commonly used guidelines for reporting health research, with the purpose of increasing the clarity, completeness, and transparency of reported research. This book is aimed at a range of professions and roles within the medical and academic fields, including authors, editors, peer reviewers, and funders. From a medical writing perspective, it provides some fundamental background knowledge on the necessity, generation and application of guidelines for publishing research... Overall this book provides a valuable resource for authors, editors, peer reviewers, and funders to ensure the appropriate guidelines are chosen and correctly applied. I would highly recommend it to any medical writer looking to broaden their knowledge of how best to report health research.(Medical Writing, Dec 2016)
