Nature introduces editorial measures to improve consistency and quality of reporting in life-sciences articles. Central to this initiative is a checklist intended to prompt authors to disclose technical and statistical information in their submissions, and to encourage referees to consider aspects important for research reproducibility. The checklist includes information to be provided for animal studies and recommends consulting the ARRIVE guidelines for reporting animal experiments.
ARRIVE Guidelines developed by
UK National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs)
