A randomised controlled trial of an Intervention to Improve Compliance with the ARRIVE guidelines

We are carrying out a randomised controlled study - IICARus - to assess whether mandating the completion of an ARRIVE checklist improves full compliance with the ARRIVE guidelines. Manuscripts, limited to in vivo studies, will be scored by two independent reviewers against the operationalised ARRIVE checklist, blinded both to intervention status and to the scores from the other reviewer. Discrepancies will be resolved by a third reviewer who will be blinded to the identity, and unblinded to the scores, of the previous reviewers.

It is a big project and we would like to get you involved in assessing manuscripts!

There is an online training module accompanied by a resource which is a prerequisite for becoming a reviewer for this study.

We would really appreciate your collaboration and support with this endeavour! In addition to gaining review skills and earning prizes reviewers will also be listed as collaborators in the resulting publication (which means it comes up under your name in PubMed). We plan for the listing of contributions to follow the format for the AVERT trial.
