Just for fun – a guidelines map!

There’s a confusing plethora of reporting guidelines out there, so here’s an explorer’s map to help navigate them! Tell me please if there are any I’ve missed or misplaced…


As a brief note of explanation, the ‘states’ are the main areas to which guidelines apply, and ‘cities’ are those guidelines which fit neatly into a particular area. Some guidelines or bodies are more broadly encompassing and these are written across the map. Finally, the ‘invaders’, AllTrials and RIAT (links), represent the push towards transparency in reporting clinical trials. Most of these are listed and explained on the EQUATOR network (links)
