We check for quality indicators in three areas.

  • Research: We check for signals of a research paper to differentiate between research and, for example, a commentary. We would expect a clear study objective, headers, and more for a high-quality research paper. 
  • Professionalism: We perform checks of the authorship, affiliation, ethical statement, and funders present in a manuscript.
  • Reproducibility: We know it’s not always possible to share data and code, but those are some of the critical indicators of reproducibility.

More information on our quality indicators can be found in our data dictionary here.
