Endorsements — Principles and Guidelines for Reporting Preclinical Research

The signatories represent journals, associations, and societies that publish or edit preclinical biological research — an area of research that encompasses both exploratory studies and hypothesis-testing studies, with many different designs. The journals, associations, and societies listed below endorse the principles and guidelines with the aim of facilitating the interpretation and repetition of experiments as they have been conducted in the published study. These measures and principles do not obviate the need for replication and reproduction in subsequent investigations to establish the robustness of published results across multiple biological systems.
