Clinical trial registration, research flow diagrams, and research checklists

Human and animal research: Registration is required for all clinical trials that began after July 1, 2010. CONSORT flow diagrams are required for randomized clinical trials and PRSIMA flow diagrams, for systematic reviews. Authors of manuscripts reporting on these types of research are also encouraged, but not required, to upload a CONSORT or PRISMA checklist for peer review only, and authors reporting on animal research are encouraged, but not required, to upload the ARRIVE checklist.
