Reporting Guidelines

REporting of studies Conducted using Observational Routinely-collected Data (RECORD) is an international collaborative which has developed reporting guidelines for studies conducted using routinely-collected health data.

The aim of the collaborative is to enhance transparency by providing researchers with the minimum reporting requirements needed to adequately convey the methods and results of their research. The guidelines will also assist journals editors and peer reviewers critically assess manuscripts for publication.

Checklists are available for observational studies using routinely collected linked data and non-interventional pharmacoepidemiological studies using routinely collected health data. Other publications of interest include:
