Abstract

We would like to thank the Editorial Board and the authors of the editorials for their support for the STARD initiative. We firmly believe that reporting guidelines such as STARD can contribute to more complete and more transparent reporting, thereby reducing waste in research and enhancing evidence-informed decision-making (1).
