Toward good in vitro reporting standards (GIVReSt)

A recent publication summarizes a series of initiatives geared towards improving the quality of in vitro work and its reporting, that shall ultimately lead to Good In Vitro Reporting Standards (GIVReSt). If many areas have developed reporting standards and checklists to support the adequate reporting of scientific efforts, in vitro research still has no generally accepted criteria. Such a culture may undermine trust in the reproducibility of animal-free methods. Quality reporting priorities are to ensure the completeness and transparency of information provided, as well as making information digestible and easy to grasp, compare and further analyse.
