Much biomedical research is observational. The reporting of such research is often inadequate, which hampers the assessment of its strengths and weaknesses and of a study's generalisability. The Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) initiative developed recommendations on what should be included in an accurate and complete report of an observational study. We defined the scope of the recommendations to cover three main study designs: cohort, case-control…

The aim of this work was to analyse the applicability of reporting guidelines especially for claims data and to add some details in the STROSA-2 guidelines concerning study design, legal foundations, data protection, data flow, descriptive results and risk of bias.

The reporting of studies conducted using observational routinely collected health data statement for pharmacoepidemiology (RECORD-PE)

It is anticipated that increasing use of the RECORD-PE guidelines by researchers and endorsement and adherence by journal editors will improve the standards of reporting of pharmacoepidemiological research undertaken using routinely collected data, which will benefit the research community, patient care, and ultimately improve public health.

The reporting of observational research studies in dermatology journals: a literature-based study.

The quality of reporting was similar across study designs for "critical" questions with the exception of reporting of participant details, which was better reported in cohort studies compared with cross-sectional and case-control studies.

The Development of a Checklist to Enhance Methodological Quality in Intervention Programs

This paper proposes a specific, parsimonious, 12-items checklist to empirically define the methodological quality of primary studies based on a content validity study, and presents an inter-coder reliability study for the resulting 12- items.

An efficient way to help researchers to keep up with recent methodological developments is to develop guidance documents that are spread to the research community at large.

A method to evaluate scientific evidence in clinical preventive medicine

The methods for evaluating the study quality in randomized controlled trials (RCTs), cohort studies, and case-control studies are reviewed.

A Systematic Review of Prevalence Studies on Multimorbidity: Toward a More Uniform Methodology

Marked variation exists among studies of the prevalence of multimorbidity with respect to both methodology and findings, and investigators should carefully consider the specific diagnoses included and their number, as well as the operational definition of multimOrbidity.
