TLDR
The credibility of a widely endorsed checklist of this type, the Consolidated Criteria for Reporting Qualitative Research (COREQ), is critically reviewed by replicating the procedures that led to the consolidation of its 32 items by replicates the procedures and rationale applied in the four phases.

Systematic mapping of existing tools to appraise methodological strengths and limitations of qualitative research: first stage in the development of the CAMELOT tool
TLDR
The plethora of tools indicates a lack of consensus regarding the best tool to use, and an absence of empirical evidence about the most important criteria for assessing the methodological limitations of qualitative research, including in the context of use with GRADE-CERQual. Expand
Standards for Reporting Qualitative Research: A Synthesis of Recommendations
TLDR
The SRQR aims to improve the transparency of all aspects of qualitative research by providing clear standards for reporting qualitative research and will assist authors during manuscript preparation, editors and reviewers in evaluating a manuscript for potential publication, and readers when critically appraising, applying, and synthesizing study findings.
