Hepatology Author Agreement Form

The Journal of Hepatology supports the use of an appropriate reporting guideline when writing a health research manuscript. Below or on the EQUATOR network you will find the most frequently required reporting policies, which also gives general information on how to choose the right policy and why guidelines are important. At least your article should report the content addressed by each item on the identified checklist or indicate that the article was not considered in the study (for example, if you did not use an affiliation, your article should say so). Meeting these essential reporting requirements will significantly improve the value of your manuscript, facilitate/improve the peer review process, and increase the chances of eventual publication. This free tool helps you understand which reporting policies are right for you: Some common types of studies and corresponding guidelines are listed below. If you can`t find a suitable policy, check out the full EQUATOR database and talk to our editor-in-chief. Depending on your research, you might need to use more than one policy. For example, if you assigned human participants to one of the two interventions and then conducted unstructured interviews with each participant, you should use CONSORT, COREQ, and TIDIER together. To make sure you collect all relevant policies, check each title, even if you`ve already found a relevant policy under a previous main title. • you have controlled the procedure/exposure/etc.
