Rigor & Transparency

Rigor & Transparency at NINDS

Experimental and analytical rigor, measures to reduce bias, and transparency of reporting are the foundations for quality scientific research. Attention to principles of good study design and transparent reporting are essential to enable the scientific community as well as the community at large to assess the value of scientific findings. This is also important for peer reviewers to properly advise NINDS on grant applications. Recently NINDS and NIH have been promoting efforts to improve transparency in scientific reporting.
