NC3Rs conducts road testing and revision of ARRIVE guidelines

In 2010, the NC3Rs developed the Animal Research: Reporting In Vivo Experiments (ARRIVE) guidelines, a 20-item checklist designed to improve the reporting of research using animals. Despite growing levels of support for the ARRIVE guidelines throughout the scientific community over recent years, there is limited evidence of improvement in the quality of reporting in animal research publications. An international working group is road testing updating the guidelines and developing a strategy to accelerate their uptake to make sure that reporting of animal experiments in scientific publications will further improve.
