Abstract: Research reports are the most common way to communicate research findings for target readerships. Complete, accurate and transparent reporting of research studies facilitates dissemination, interpretation, translation and replication of research findings. Inadequate reporting has major consequences for clinicians, researchers, policy makers and ultimately patients. It impairs critical assessment of the validity, relevance and trustworthiness of research and so impedes its use in practice. It also limits the usability of study findings by other researchers conducting systematic reviews and meta-analyses and building on or replicating studies. In addition, inadequate reporting is one of the key contributors to avoidable waste in biomedical research. Researchers thus have an ethical obligation to research participants, funding organisations and society as a whole to report their findings in ways that are of use in practice and policy making
